What We Accomplished Together In 2017

Thank you for your continued support of this project. It is at the heart of our organization and is our strategy for empowering disadvantaged rural youth. Here are some of the highlights of what we accomplished together in 2017. We couldnt have done it without your support!

 1. Bringing Joy To Kids At Christmas Time

In addition to providing school fees, school uniforms and school supplies we also bring joy to kids at Christmas time. We give them toys, candy and cookies. Due to poverty the majority of kids in the rural areas do not receive toys for Christmas. This year we gave toys, candy, balloons and school supplies to over 400 children in Rimbi village. As you can see from the kids' faces in the pictures Christmas 2017 was a happy time indeed for them. They had a wonderful time!.

 2. Pre-School Program Progress

Your donations make it possible for the Tekeshe Foundation to provide a free playtime program which promotes early childhood development and learning through play. Research has found out that children who complete pre-school programs are more advanced in literacy, creativity, initiative, and social skills and they are more likely to succeed in school and to end up as productive members of society. Through your donations we are able to enroll 30 children in our pre-school. These kids are very fortunate, there are so many kids in these rural areas who want to enroll in our pre-school, unfortunately we can only take 30 kids for now. As you can see in these pictures the pre-school is doing well. Here are testimonials from some of the parents :

In Her Own Words By One Of The Parents
"My son had a speech problem and he didnt mix well with other kids. I have noticed a big difference ever since he started attending the pre-school. His speech has improved and he mixes well with other kids. He also likes going to the pre-school because he gets to play with toys and gets to play on the swings. Thank you so much for helping my son!"


In Her Own Words By One Of The Grand Parents
"My grandchild didn’t want to go to school. The playground equipment helped a lot! The moment he saw the other kids playing on the swings he wanted to go to the pre-school. Thank you so much for providing this playground equipment. We had never seen anything like this in this village. "

 In Her Own Words By One Of The Parents
"The kids are learning a lot. They are taught English and they are also taught good manners.  They also enjoy playing with the toys and playing on the swings. There are so many kids in the village who want to attend the pre-school but for now they can only take 30 kids. I feel very fortunate that my daughter is enrolled at the pre-school. Thank you so much.”

 3. Education Program

Your donations make it possible for the Tekeshe Foundation to provide school  fees, uniforms and school supplies to disadvantaged rural kids. I am pleased to announced that we gave 75 backpacks, 1000 pencils, pens, notebooks and crayons to the kids

Goals for 2018

  • Start construction on a new building that will house our pre-school and our youth center

As you can see we have accomplished a lot. These accomplishments would not have been possible without your support. Through your donations you are playing a major role in transforming the lives of rural kids!

Best wishes,

Thelma
