Currently the country has been experiencing heavy rainfall. Most of the structures in park view are old and tend to leak thus not providing adequate shelter for the children.Tumaini is working on building better or rather stone walls instead of the iron sheets as you may see in the picture below.
Adding on, we would like to get more desks and chairs to allow at least a desk to be shared by two students. As you can see the children are forced to share the available facilities while doing an examination. This allows most students to discuss rather than participate in an honest self test.
We would like to thank Global Giving for its continuous support on this project. Tumaini and the children at park view are gratefull for all the contribution so far.
I am pleased to present this report pertaining our progress in the last few months which highlights the activities and projects we have engaged on as well as areas for further work in improving the livelihood and education of the children in Parkview.
First is a pile of appreciation to you our generous donors who have showed your tremendous support in our projects.We look forward to a continued relationship.Indeed,You are part of this great family.
We established a programme in the school in collaboration with the teachers to engage in a mentorship and interaction session with the children.We are looking forward to a continued partners with the teachers to help the children grow in a mentored manner.
TFEDI is looking forward to providing a conducive environment for the children.We would like to provide a playpark where the kids can be able to play and carry other co-curricular activities.Despite having a small compound it is possible to utilize it by planting grass and removing the hard stones to give the kids a conducive play park.
Shared below you will find the pictures of the kids in the school.
Our visit to the Parkview Orphans Achievers Shelter
This year we were so happy to visit the children. We wanted to see the progress of the program we started. We provided the children with basic essentials to kick off their second term. We spent the day with the children, getting to know them while interacting with them.
Why Educate a child
The children were ready to learn and have a bright future and to be someone in the society. I talked to one child by the name Carol, she told me she wanted to be a doctor in future. Therefore education is the key to help these children make their dreams come to pass.
Clothing Program Upon receiving the clothes donated to the children by one of the volunteers the children’s faces lit up with joy. A small girl recited a poem thanking us for the gifts they had received. Therefore, we will need your help to make the clothing program become a routine in this school.
Classroom/Conducive Environment Conducive environment for these children is a big step in making their learning more efficient and effective. Currently, the classrooms are made of iron sheet which is very dangerous to a small child because he/she may get cut in case it falls, also the roof has holes and the children may get rained on especially in the rainy season and in times of hot weather they feel hot during classes. So we would like to improve their learning conditions by making their classrooms better.
Why Visit the School
When I visited the Parkview Orphans Achievers Shelter in Kajiado County I saw that many of the children were excited. They felt happy that we visited them since they knew their life is starting to change for the better. Hence, one should visit the school in order to see how the children are faring on and if the education program we started has made impact in their lives.
Parkview Achievers has 250 children ranging in age from 2 years and above. Most of them are either orphans or of single parents and guardians. Their parents eke out a living by hawking and doing small scale business which cannot provide basic needs for the children. By our help we want to make a big change to the pupils at that school so that they have a bright future ahead of them.
We find it so difficult to handle the whole children and came up with an idea of first helping the small children who are 20 in number.As the project grows we can continue supporting the rest of the children.During our first visit we came up with an idea of having a tea break with them which we gave them a packet of milk for each child.By this we had a great time with them.
Thank you for the support we are receiving from you.
We also have different group in the organization which provide basic need to the children which is lunch. We have made great impact not by ourselves but through your support.
By puting our hands together we can change the pupils. Please help us change the living of our children through your donation
