On the 4th January, we welcomed back children to our education programmes in Kibera after a 9-month break.
We are picking up where we left off with children in our School Transition Programme and free primary school, the Fountains Of Hope School.
The government opted for a phased reopening of schools. So 40 children returned to the Fountains of Hope School in October last year. Now all the children who had remained out of school have returned to school and our daily feeding programme is back in action. We're providing a nutritious breakfast and lunch every day to all the children in our education programmes.
The children are excited to be back with their friends and to have lots of activities to do each day after a long time of being at home with little to do.
We're following the government's guidelines to keep children COVID-safe. All children and staff wear masks and sit 1m apart in class, we've also added more handwashing stations to ensure all kids keep washing hands regularly.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past year to provide food vouchers to families while the children were out of school. We provided a total of 4,173 vouchers between March and December 2020 and helped sustain families during the darkest moments of last year. We are so grateful for your partnership.
