Feed & Educate an Orphan Child for a year in Kenya

by Juhudi Children in Crisis

It was a great moments for the children as they received their food. This has been a life changing project as majority of the children who could not access education are continually in school. Joel is very grateful for the continued support that he s getting from Juhudi. Smiling and showing a happy face, Joel says "am very thankful with other children as i always get this great opportunity and support from Juhudi. Am sure I will continually be in school and support other children like me in future" These are the words of hope that continually keep us working and see that the children get more support from our great supporters.

After a continueous feeding program in our schools, we have seen an increased number of children attending school of both orphans and valunerable. January is a hard month that most children face the challenge of attending school due to luck of support. this is where juhudi joins hand with the community and schools to see that children get food and access education. Calnile, Judith and Brian are few among the children who are smillig everyday getting meals and fees support in attaining their education. We are both supporting these children in their homes and the schools that we work with."am happy to get uniform and food to continue with my education" said Calnile. " i will always go to school" said Judith. " thanks Juhudi for your cntinued support" said Brian.

After supporting children to access food, majority of them are promising to continually remain in school as they get meals while there. John a 7 year old boy orphan is promising with great hope to continually remain in school. John excitedly dances as he takes his meal of the day before schools get closed. “Am dancing because am sure after my school I will serve the community as a nurse taking care of small children like me. Am very happy that Juhudi continually supports us with food. I will always be in school when it opens". Says John. As our feeding program moves on, we will continually support our children both orphans and valunerable children in schools and homes.

Chepkaitit ECD received their food support to continue with the feedig program.As schools  open from August holiday, this children still need to be supported to remain in school and continue with their learning. The month of September is another challenging month to most children. Juhudi has given a bag of maize which was accompanied with 25 kilograms of sugar  these for their porridge feeding program. More than 70 children are today very happy smiling as they got access their education and get a meal. “we are happy that this children will remain in school and learn like others from different parts of the country. We appreciate the work you are doing to support children and community” Senior Teacher

On 16th of June every year is the day of an African child. This year Juhudi brought together more than 400 children from 5 schools. The month of June is one of the hardest months in this area as many families cannot cater for the food of their children. Most families take their children to work in the farms exposing them to child labor. Juhudi used this special day and brought the children to have fun play and share meals together on 14th of June. Many people came out to support this great work of Juhudi which sees many children smiling and being happy with meals. “Am very happy that Juhudi comes for our rescue all the time when we are in hard situations. We appreciate all those behind this great work for us”Said Nyakindi 13 years old boy.
