Christmas Message from Daniel Marungu, Chief Executive Officer
Abundance school has continued to be an icon of education in our community for children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to go to school.
We have a total of 80 children regularly attending, four regular teachers and several volunteer teachers, a cook, gardener and security guard.
The school is in a wooden shack with few facilities – not even a proper toilet. It has just one small classroom that is partitioned into five learning spaces.
As well as Maths, English , Swahili, Social Studies and Religious Education, the children are also taught General Studies where cleanliness and safety are taught to protect them from dangers of contaminated water and poor hygiene etc.
Our children also benefit from relaxing breathing techniques, body movement, music and other stress-relief related studies.
We want to create a society that is holistically developed where each individual values themself and other people
To encourage families to send their children to school, we are promising them a back to school pack which will include school bag, books,pencils,coloring pens, sharpener etc.
We are launching a campaign via Global Giving to raise funds for these Christmas gifts.
The progress at Joy Babycare is impressive.We have an average of seven children under our care on a daily basis. So far activities are smoothly conducted. We look into activation and stimulation of brain growth and development of a child.
We are introducing a program where all parents come together to spend time with their children at Joy Babycare so they can benefit from new relationships and parenting.
Give Me Another Chance is a project that poses great challenges to us. We have not been able to increase the number of breath ambassadors due to limited funds.We are hoping that maybe we will be able to find a corporate donor to fund this program
Even though we have not been able to grow, some of those people we trained have continued to inspire others in community. They have continued to give talks in schools ,churches and other social gatherings.
We have a chance to receive a grant of 5000-20,000 UK pounds from Global Giving UK. We have been invited to actively participate in their Christmas campaign to raise our chances to qualify. We have decided to use our ‘Back to School pack’ campaign to raise our chances of winning. We are now needing to reach out to as many friends as possible for support.As I speak , I am excited to draft a budget for our Abundance School construction project. We are trusting in God to attract what we need.
Please share this with all your friends and family. If you would like to publicise our campaign please feel free to use our photos
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and abundant new year.
