The Visit.

Schools were closing in  august and we needed to set a date before the closure and after the end of term exams.We had planned to have a surprise visit to Kiambiu School on this partcular day so that we could experience how a normal day for the kid looks like.

The day came and we left Kiambiu everyone set to for his/her role in te school as earlier planned.We found the kids in the assembly ground and the teacher introduced our team to the kids.They were so excited and happy on seeing our team.We later on joined the kids to their classes where their teachers gave us an opportunity to interact with them.We taught the kids new kids songs,we played kids game like hide and seek and engaged in modelling activities and arts.Over lunch hour we served the kids rice and peas stew that we had prepared for them.We all had our lunch together and the kids were so excited about the food and the other outdoor activities that we had engaged on.

At four pm we had another gathering with the kids as they were living for home.We later on joined a staff meeting where the teachers expressed their gratitude towards our visit.They were also able to share some concerns with us about the kids.Some of the concerns included:

Poor feeding programme where the parents cannot be able to raise an additional cash in the school fees paid to start a common feeding programme for all the kids in the school.These results to all kids having to bring food from home and some famillies cannot spare enough food for the kids to carry,therefore resulting to sharing of the small amount carried by the fortunate ones.

Inadequate resources in the school which has resulted to kids of different ages and grades sharing classes and teachers.These creates a lot of disruption among the students where they cannot concentrate and the teacher cannot excercise maximum concentration in few kids.The school has also inadequate learning resources ie. textbooks,chalks and boards.

We are looking forward to secure adequate financilal support to help the kids improve their learning.We want to put a smile on the kids as they go to school,and make them view learning as a fun activity.

To our donors,your supports are always appreciated and they help us make a step forward
