It is my pleasure to present our project progress and update report (August-September 2019) for the Project: “Giving children a chance to learn and grow.” This project wasaimed at creating a sustainable water supply system that would not only provide water throughout the year but also improve the standards of sanitation to the Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

During this period, PEN in consultation with the Mutulani community especially the Schools and the local community-based organization that spearheads the project, agreed to update and merge this project with the original project ‘provide clean and safe water for 1500 women and children.’ The fusion of the two projects is geared towards provision of clean and safe water in Mutulani community including the community’s institutions (Mutulani primary & Secondary Schools) and improvement of sanitation standards. The two projects, though slightly different, aimed at the same goal thus the rationale of combining them. This would also enhance the fundraising efforts through the GlobalGiving platform to achieve the overarching goal of the projects. The “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” project has so far raised $97.69 since it was posted, an amount that will be pooled with those of ‘provide clean and safe water for 1500 women and children’ project. Further, the micro project that was posted in the GlobalGiving page with an objective of equipping the Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in 2017 with a water Pump retired in August 2019, thus all effort will now be directed to fundraising for one project with the purpose of achieving the ultimate goal soon. The synergy that will be gained through the merger of these projects is aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of the project and to improve the efficiency of fundraising strategy.

Mutulani Community and PEN continues to appreciate the selfless support that all our donors and supporters provide towards ending the perennial water and sanitation issues experienced in Mutulani village.

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report (May 2019-July 2019) for “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” which isaimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya

During this period both PEN and the Mutulani community including the two schools (Mutulani primary & Secondary Schools), developed and posted a Micro project to the GlobalGiving page with an objective of equipping the Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in 2017 with a water Pump and enable the water to be accessed by the schools and the community. This was identified by the community and the area institutions as an intervention requiring an immediate action because the borehole has not been in use for over two years despite the dire need of water in the area

This being the main concerns for everyone in Mutulani at the time, all efforts are put towards installing a water pump to the Borehole and it is our humble request to our donors and friends of goodwill to help us actualize this dream.

Please find below the project details

It is my pleasure to present our fourth project progress report (February 2019-April 2019) since the project initiation in May 2018. “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” is aimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

This project is 11 months old and in the efforts of fundraising towards equipping Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in the year 2017, we are happy to have known a different approach to attaining the objective faster through GlobalGiving. This was brought to light by the GlobalGiving Field traveler Madam Isabelle Hall on 1st and 2nd April 2019 after visiting our project in Mutulani schools together with the Community

PEN is now developing a Micro project with a sole aim of raising funds for the water pump and equipping materials to upload in May 2019.

PEN, Mutulani community through Mawe CBO and Mutulani schools are grateful to the field traveler for visiting and enlightening on this new approach towards addressing the dire need of equipping Mutulani borehole towards acquiring a reliable water source

This project was approved in May 2018 and it is still managing its formative stages strains of making the project known (raising more friends to our donor database to enhance the project achieve its goal). So far, the community has received a number of commitments from identified new friends who have assured their support towards the project. Some of the major commitments are by the County Government of Makueni where the Minister, Hon Bob Kisyula, who reported that plans are underway to equip all boreholes within the County. He assured that Mutulani sunken Borehole is among the prioritized projects to be completed in the year 2019.

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for its second quarter (August-October 2018), since its approval in May 2018. The project; “Giving children a chance to grow and learn” is aimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

During this period, the project has embarked on sensitization to bring the community and new friends both internally and outside the country to establish a strong fundraising base to enhance the achievement of our project objectives. A move that has made fundraising easier is the partnership between GlobalGiving and M-Changa, a Kenyan Mobile Money fundraising platform in collaboration with M-Pesa has greatly enabled local fundraising efforts, especially for those looking to donate in the local currency, Kenya Shillings. We believe this year will record the highest number of contributors during the end of year Campaign.

Kindly follow this link and share with friends our new project: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/giving-children-a-chance-to-learn-and-grow/

PEN and the Mutulani community are once again grateful to all our donors who have begun this journey with us to transform lives of Mutulani people to sustain the available water sources.

Thank you
