Introduction 

The feeding programme improves the health and wellbeing of children. Access, to what may be the only meals they receive in a day, incentivizes families to send their children to school. Children who are fed nutritious meals at school will be more able to engage with school activities and have greater prospects of reaching their full potential.

Report 

The feeding programme feeds around 250 children two nutritious meals a day, improving their health and concentration levels. We are also fundraising to build a new school with a veggie garden. It costs the program $15 per child per month to supply breakfast and lunch on their feeding program.

Thank you for your support

Introduction 

Our school is located in a particularly deprived area of Mombasa. Many children can't access education due to lack of facilities, resources and funds for teachers. This means that families and communities struggle to break the cycle of poverty. Inconsistency or lack of teaching staff due to funding is common and a huge barrier to children's education. Health issues, in particular, hunger and its related ailments, keeps children away as food is prioritized over education.

Report 

The school has now grown to 311 students who receive fruit in the morning a cooked lunch and an afternoon snack. Often this is the only meal that these children get. The slum is currently home to approximately 4000 children so there are still many more children going hungry. The feeding programme improves the health and wellbeing of children. Access, to what may be the only meals they receive in a day, incentivizes families to send their children to school. Children who are fed nutritious meals at school will be more able to engage with school activities and have greater prospects of reaching their full potential.

Introduction 

We have been working with a local Primary School in Mombasa since 2010. The school has grown from its humble beginnings as a care centre to a fully-fledged school. As the centre grew and developed, this project has helped to cater to its diverse and ever-changing needs.

Report 

Funds collected in the last quarter went towards milk and vegetables on the normal feeding program and for a closing day party at the school. The school also used funds to supply bananas and medication for the children.

Donations made to this project are used to subsidise teachers' wages and the Feeding Programme, which has been running since 2010. By ensuring that teachers can get paid, we are able to provide consistency for the staff and children, helping to keep them in school and maximise their learning capacity. The feeding programme feeds around 250 children two nutritious meals a day, improving their health and concentration levels. We are also fundraising to build a new school with a veggie garden.

Introduction 

We have been working with a local Primary School in Mombasa since 2010. The school has grown from its humble beginnings as a care centre to a fully-fledged school. As the centre grew and developed, this project has helped to cater to its diverse and ever-changing needs. With 14.5 million individuals facing a food crisis, this project is a start to alleviating their struggles. Funds are used primarily to fund a feeding programme and to cover the school running costs.

Report 

School resumed on the 26th July for the new academic year. Thanks to all of your support we have enough funds for our feeding programme for the month of August however we do still need further assistance for the following months. A donation of $15 will provide breakfast and lunch for one student for one month.

Dear our very special supporters! 

Life in Mombasa has been tough! As the global pandemic slowly comes under control schools in Kenya are now back and your donations have been hard at work helping us keep the doors open. We are still very much hoping to build a new sustainable school in 2021 that will help us remove ongoing costs and ensure we can be long term sustainable without the worry of guessing fundraising and donations. If you have not already seen our micro project then please do check it out here and if you can share with your special network of friends and family to help us reach out target to lay the first bricks of our new school!

Currently we reply on donations to ensure the school can remain open but this gets tougher and touger each month and although we have exciting new ways with our new school to remove many costs, today we are struggling. 

In March 2021 we brought in 30,388Ksh in donations, we also had motorbikes donated to the school which we hire out to the community and the profit of this goes into our school, in March we raised a total income of 42,300Khs and then for those that are able to pay school fees we took in 76,450Khs in March. This is a total income of 149,138Khs ($1,374).

In March we had to pay out 11,820Khs to keep the motorbikes project running, 50,000Khs rent for our school to the landlord, 29,940Khs in learning materials and school expenses, 154,000 in staffing salaries and KCPE (exam fees) of 17,060. To keep the doors open in March it cost us 262,820Khs $2,421. The School also runs a feeding project for students and March meals was funded through a local donation. 

In March our school overspent by 113,682Khs which is around $1,100 and now we need to fundraise and appeal to donors to help us fundraise this shortfall while we also prepare for covering the costs to run in April. 

As a special donor and supporter of our project we kindly request you help us raise awareness and share our story while we try to look for monthly donors to help us continue to run. 

Thank you,

 

Brian (Headteacher), Ty, Chelsea, Shayle, Ash, Karla, Heidi, Phil and Senthan (Action Change Team)
