DETERMINED TO FINISH WELL

Our determined girls came back and over 90% re-opened when the Kenyan Government resumed the opening of schools in the beginning of January 2021 only to be rudely interrupted once again with another lockdown from 19th March 2021. Luckily during this reporting period, the Government has once again opened schools with strict adherance to the COVID-19 rules on 11th May 2021.

Beginning this week (17th May 2021) we have seen a number of our girls coming back to school and the actual number are yet to be known in the next two weeks. Among 152,000 Kenyan teenage girls reported pregnant during the first lockdown only 5 from our schools were reported not coming back but whether due to pregnancy or some other issues, we are yet to establish.

We want to thank you and some other local donors for enabling us to raise a total of US$3,461.78 of which US$ 2,456.36 were donation from you and our other supporters with a matching of US$1,005.48 from the GlobalGiving Foundation for "Help 100 Girls to Complete School project" during the March 2021 campaign. We received another US$1,496.00 as one among the eight (8) organizations in the cohort of Girlfund. We will continue to assist the girls in giving them lifeskills through crotcheting training, provision of free clean water for both domestic use and drinking.
As soon as they have all come back in the next two weeks, we intend to purchase some sanitary towels for the girls and provide according to the needs some eductaion writing materials. Provision of food is a necessity for these girls to complete their education and we have already purchased items for the feeding program which will be enough for the entire term.
We are glad that despite the problems of the COVID-19 pandemic which had been a real threat for our survival, things are settling down and our wish is that we shall have no more interruptions due to this pandemic. We continue to appeal to our supporters and well wishers for their consistent commitment every month to enables us continue giving these girls hope and ensure they complete their education.
