Beans bought in bulk for Feeding Program
With the escalting prices and the need to feed over 400 pupils and student in Nairobi and almost 100 in Kisumu we increasingly need a constant monthly contribution. For the reporting period covering February to April 2021, we received a total of US$3,854.63 from our donors towards the Feeding Project during and outside the globalGiving Fundraising campaign. Together with our internal collection, we managed at the begining of the term to buy in bulk enough Maize and beans to last the whole term ending July 2021. The cereal is a major ingredient of the feeding program. Since the start of the term in May, we have had a constant supply of hot lunch and breakfast for our two centres. The students/pupils are motivated. Parents are grateful as this cut the cost in their budget for food and also to provide breakfast and lunch which the majority rarely afford.
Though feeding program is always consuming but its impact is clearly seen when a child who could have gone back to the street do well and stay in school. We are very grateful to you and all our donors who have enabled us to achieve this impact. Your donation is the reason these children are staying in school. Staying and completing school is the only surest way of giving these needy children hope for the future. No child can concentrate with an empty stomach.
We thank you for choosing to support us and continue to appeal for your support. Our appeal and prayer is that if we can get monthly commitment of US$200 from just 15 donors, we will never have any problem in feeding the growing population of our beneficiaries. Having more monthly donations provides ongoing support and GlobalGiving has promised to match 200% any consistent monthly giving from any donor. The impact would be clearly seen in their performance, healrth and incentive to learn. This would be fulfillment of our vision and we would have served our generation and make the world better than we found it.
Special thanks for those who have committed to give monthly. We ask you to spread the word among your networks so that they can willingly give what they can afford to help us meet the feeding budget. Be one among the few to commit your monthly giving to this noble cause.
