Children who are staying with old women can now feed well. They have been given beans and maize.
Most of them have ground their maize for food.

Since we have already realized funds in time children have already taken their shares of beans and maize to school for their midday meals
Health care (HIV/AIDS)
Our children look healthy. We make sure that those who are HIV+ get beans and maize, go to get their medicine on the right days as required so that they are healthy.
Our motto of long term survival skills are mostly practiced here, counseling is done, self-awareness kept and stress is avoided and no stigma.
These schools have improved. In some places, old women come for porridge at break time.
School dropout (girl child)
These youths sometimes they are called young mothers are referred to PEFO and other project organizations. We are trying to pay for the small demands of organizations where they practice tailoring, hair dressing sometimes computer according to the dropout interest.

The very needy get some little top up of their fees, sometimes money for grinding their maize since some cannot afford.
Child’s day care
We sometimes make it twice a year.
We prepare plays and MDD for them to come together, eat together and play together according to how each group’s planning.
Most of our children were promoted to the next level of learning.
Children got uniforms and scholastic materials and food for eating at school and all our children feed at school.
There has been hot sunshine from late December to date we don’t know whether the season will be good.
If possible, can we prepare our children to visit other schools? Busia schools, Tororo Schools, Amonikakinei and Bugiri to see and learn what happens in other places
We love our dear donors who care for our needs and the needs of our children.

We always remind them to stick on COVID 19 rules of keeping distance, avoid unnecessary movements to places and homes and wash hands with soap, wear their masks
We are trying to maintain them but COVID 19 had disturbed the system due to its demands.
This most for girls. We have always given them courage to keep them happy and active send them to small trainings like tailoring and hair dressing trained these children for small scale business, sell buns samosa and others keep them busy so that they are not wasted

We have always referred the dropouts for short courses like tailoring, hair dressing. These are project places who do not demand much.
There is no food for term three for our children because the yield has not been good therefore parent’s contribution is not there in term three
The standard of our children’s learning is not up to date because the children did not go to school for 2 years
There is full learning and continuous learning of children, term one ended properly and we are on term 2 learning with all levels of learning at school
Our suggestions are that the rains were not systematic, in some places the seeds dried and fair yield at all
Our request is that if funds are available we buy seeds for children’s parents these are women for the second season, maize, beans, groundnuts, garlic, sukuma, onions and tomatoes.
We are grateful for all the assistance

Our areas of support of children
Our activities in regards to children
The system of education is not good since Covid-19 started. Children are on and off some classes have not entered class like P.2 – P.3 and Senior 1 and we are worried of our education status in our country caused by Covid-19
It has been announced that all classes will begin in January 2022
We gave scholastic materials to all classes that were on and then off. We will need to provide again in January 2022.
Feeding at school
Whenever some class went to school, maize and beans were provided from funds received through River Fund for we serve those in need.
Feeding children at their home
Whenever there was no way to go to school, food was given to feed children at their home because life was hard for children since they were used to feed at school.
The child headed families have always been provided with food as usual.
For two years of covid-19 we failed to provide uniform to children due to short period of learning but in case funds are realized, we shall provide uniforms January 2022.
Fees top up
It has been done to top up fees for our very needy children but it has not been so useful because no sooner had fees been paid than schools closed.
Health care - HIV/AIDs
We try to keep our children healthy through our balanced diet as practiced in long term survival skills for HIV/AIDS training.
Our positive living children on ARVs are always visited and counseled by our councilors and make sure they keep their clinic day and get drugs in time.
Our center schools have not been up to date due to covid-19 and children could not go to these places but children stayed at home as we took care of them by providing them food to eat at home, maize and beans.
Covid-19 has hindered this child’s day because people have to say where they are. We cannot afford the expensive temperature gun and we have to obey the covid-19 practices.
Keep distance, wear masks, and wash hands with soap and water, sanitizer.
School dropout - girls.
It has been high especially our vulnerable and these are our girl children. They have a high drop out and some become young mothers and we are sorry about it.
We have referred our school drops out for hair dressing and tailoring as we cannot have them to be idle
We received funds through River Fund and we have been able to grow beans and maize to feed out children at home and at school.
We are receiving rain after such a long drought from May to September.
Our children will all go to school next January 2022.
There has been no smooth learning for our children. Learning has been on and off and some not going to school at all.
Very long drought has caused shortages of food and life has been hard on the side of food for feeding our children
Uniforms be provided to our children immediately schools open
We are grateful of River Fund who connects our needs to our donors.
