When COVID-19 lockdown threatened to end a vision that we have pushed for the last 18 years by abruptly forcing the entire 60 staff in both our projects in Nairobi and Kisumu Counties, we were stranded and wondered what to do. From March upto October 2020, they were at home and we could not give them anything to give them hope. To make it worse by the time of lockdown we were already in arrears in salary payment. Adding to the effect of lockdown our situation was made worse.

However, we thank God for GlobalGiving fundraising platform. During the September Little by Little fundraising campaign, our appeal to you our donors was on how to help us give hope to our staff. During the campaign our target was US$18,000 which we had anticipated to help in cushioning our staff and give them hope as we were uncertain how long the lockdown would last.

On behalf of Sheepcare Community Centre, I take this opportunity to thank you for putting a smile on the face of our staff at least for the month of October 2020. The total remission from GlobalGiving for month of October was US$4206.67 (Kshs. 420,667/=) which we used to clear part of the arrears from a total of Kshs767,000/=.

The Kenya Government started school re-opening in phases from October 2020 where candidate classes namely Grade 4, Grade 8 and Grade 12 were recalled back to school. This made us to recall a total of 20 staff plus other staff who were recalled earlier working in other departments apart from education. Now we have a total of 34 staff in both Nairobi and Kisumu Counties. Having that number of staff and no income means more arrears is being accrued and our committed staff are still suffering particularly realizing that November month is already ending.

We sincerely thank you but urge you to commit at least US$10 monthly to make sure we retain our staff. Our greatest need is on how to motivate and sustain our staff. No organization can exist without staff. Thank you so much and with your support, we will fulfill our vision.
