Months of July and August are very hard months of the year in most parts of trans-Nzoia. These months are tough such that most families do not have food in their homes and the whole region at large. This has seen a good number of children exposed to child abuse. Majority of children are taken to work in farms to help their parents to get food and money for domestic use. These has made them be out of school and see them drop in their academic results tremendously as compared to those who attend school at all times. Not that this children only miss food but also bulk of them can’t access school requirements which will maintain them in school. Most families prefer their children not to go school but work for food. Many parents see education as a burden rather than an opportunity to change their lives. Mostly those affected are children of single parent, Orphans and those who stay with their step parent.

Juhudi has come out to safe and help these children to get food and see that they are back in school. Eight (8) children have been supported in school fees and other relevant school requirements. This has not only seen the children being back in school but also reduced child abuse of all kind. ‘It is very exciting that I can now wear school uniform and be in school as other children. Thank Juhudi children in crisis for the continued support and all those behind the support’. Elizabeth Apondi
