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

Scholastic materials

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.

Centre schools

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.

Child’s day

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.
