The project is really doing well. We paid fee to the 8 orphans having raised USD 5000. The project paid a full years fee for the 8 students in high school. Our target still remains in paying fee for the entire 65 students. Having cleared fee for the 8 is living is with a deficit of 57 students still needing fee.
We are again faced with a new challenge of pandemic which has affected the entire world and has affected the education system. Kenyan education system has been shut up and students sent home to stay with their parents and care givers. We still hope that we will manage to attract friends to help so that when the school reopens in January 2021, then we shall have enough money to pay for their school fees. I know it has been tough with both parents and students.
We have also put a close contact with the students we sponsor by coordinating and paying for the online lessons so as to keep them posted on the ongoing government interventions.
Nyalenda being the largest slum in the history of east African countries, it is tough as people are competing between having a meal on the table and educating their children, some parents end up giving forcing their daughters for early marriage, some force their daughters to do domestic jobs dropping out of school. That is what JW foundation is trying to prevent through scholarship program to the bright and needy students in our community.
