Our beneficiaries from Mukinyai are progressing on well. Students are back to school after 2 weeks break during elections. As earlier reported, this year we were not in a position to accommodate more beneficiaries in our program despite the list of request being very long. It has been very challenging in fund raising hence making it difficult to extend support to the increasing number of needy and vulnerable students in the area. Although supporting vulnerable students is critical, we will a bit change direction and focus on improving community livelihood through poultry rearing as a source of family nutrition improvement and source of income. The activity is in the project but we focused mainly on students education support but due to fundraising challenges, we will diversify a bit and support a few vulnerable families with chicken to assess how the activity will result to. Necofa has been supporting vulnerable households in chicken rearing project and we have realized commendable results. Beneficiary community in Mau forest have reported good progress and benefits through the activity. Families have been having healthy diets by eating eggs and chicken meat. On the other hand they have been earning income through sales of eggs and chickens as well. We intend to kick start the activity in Mukinyai village next month and we have already identified 5 vulnerable households to start with. We remain optimistic that the activity will be successful and will benefit the identified families. Upon success, we will officially focus to that direction and support more vulnerable families although we will continue fundraising towards education support and if successful we will implement both activities concurrently. To realize all these dreams we call upon our good friends, donors and well-wishers to contribute to our project. Thank you so much for your generous support, we really appreciate.
The school term was smooth in our schools and class 8 and form 4 candidates sat for their final national exams in March and April 2022. The results were later released after marking process was concluded and students received their results and they now know what is next for them. Class 8 candidates started joining secondary schools beginning of May 2022 and the process is still on-going. Form 4 candidates are waiting for universities and colleges admission and they will soon be joining their respective institutions. Our form 4 beneficiaries worked really hard and they will be joining various colleges to pursue their courses of their choice. We are proud of them for their hard-work and we congratulate them for their good performance. Although they did not qualify to join universities we are happy they made it to join colleges their success is our success. I take the opportunity to express our gratitude to all those who generously contributed to the success of the vulnerable students. Our beneficiaries remained in schools throughout the learning periods because you provided school uniforms and school fees hence the good performance. We wish them all the best in their next levels. As earlier reported, we have a long list of vulnerable students requesting for our support but due to limited resources, we are sorry we can only afford to accommodate a few. The list grew longer after KCPE results were released and many placed request to assist them join various secondary schools and unfortunately we turned them down. We have referred some of them to other service providers and we are happy some benefited. It has been very difficult in fundraising as well but we remain optimistic that things will soon improve for the better. On the other hand, parents/guardians have been going through challenging moments mainly worsened by the covid pandemic but we can only keep encouraging each other and remain positive. Thank you for the continued support from our well-wishers, donors and our friends
Another school calendar has started for this New Year. Our beneficiaries in our program have reported back to school after short December holiday for their final term. Candidates will be sitting for their final national examination from March this year. They are busy revising for their coming exams and they have assured us that they are well prepared for the exams. We pray for their success and we hope they will perform well to continue to the next level. We have already paid for this term fees for them hence they should be in school throughout. We are very happy for this achievement which has been made possible by our good friends, donors and well-wishers kindly receive our gratitude and those of our beneficiaries, parents/guardians and teachers. Together we have played a noble role in molding our less fortunate youths. We are proud of them for their hard work and we believe that they will do even better in their final exams. In the meantime we are receiving requests from vulnerable students seeking for our support in their studies. At the moment we are not in a position to give any promise as we are very low financially but working hard in fundraising to accommodate new students as from May 2022. We request for more support from our friends and well-wishers to enable us give the applicants positive feedback. It is unfortunate to see the increasing number of vulnerable children in the region who are desperately knocking many doors requesting for their education support. The situation has been worsened by the covid 19 pandemic as their parents/guardians are facing serious financial challenges. We hope situation will soon improve and business status will improve. Most parents and guardians are small scale farmers who depends on selling food surplus for income generation and others operates small businesses. Once we succeed in fundraising, we will add more beneficiaries in our program and especially the most vulnerable. Welcome and join us in supporting our needy children in their studies to shape their future. Thank you for your continued support.
Beneficiaries in this program are fine and safe, all students in their respective schools are progressing on well. They had a very short holiday in August and they reported back for another school term from end August to October 2021. Although there was no time to interact with them during the short break, we have been in touch with their respective schools where we have been informed of their progress. They are all preparing for their final exams in March 2022 where they will graduate from secondary schools. We are very happy to see them through the process and supporting them in their secondary education. We always count on you in every success we achieve for you have made the idea realistic. On behalf of our beneficiaries, please accept our sincere gratitude from bottom of our hearts. The school calendar was disrupted by the pandemic and students are now on crush program to ensure they cover the time lost last year when all institutions were closed as a result of the pandemic. This year students will go for 4 terms instead of 3 like it has been all through thus reducing the number of days for the holidays. Students are not very happy with this crush program since they don’t have much time at home during the holidays but to the parents it’s an advantage on one hand and disadvantage on the other hand. The advantage is that students are busy with their studies and have very little time to engage in other bad virtues which definitely affect their performance. The disadvantage is that parents have to pay school fees 4 terms in a year unlike before where they used to pay for 3 terms and the gap between one term and another is too close thus making them run marathon in sourcing school fees. All in all we are happy that learning is taking place and our students are safe and healthy. In the recent past we have been receiving many requests to consider supporting increasing number of vulnerable students. At the moment we can’t promise any support as fundraising has been very challenging and we will definitely consider them when we are in a position. It is our humble request to our good friends and well-wishers to chip in and extend their generosity by donating to our project so that we can continue supporting needy children in their education and especially the orphans.
Our beneficiaries in the project are fine and safe. They have all reported back to school after the April holiday. We are happy to report that all our beneficiaries have reported back to school and we have paid their school fees for this school term. We wish them success and safety throughout the term. They visited our office during the holiday and they presented their performance report forms and we appreciate their dedication and hard work. The performance were fair and we encouraged them to work even harder for more pleasing results. During their visit to our office, they shared different challenges they go through and some of them contribute to their performance. We had a session with them mainly providing guiding and counseling and encouragement to ensure they remain positive and focus more on their education. We addressed some of the challenges that we could like providing sanitary towels to the girls who said it has been hectic to get them from their parents/guardians and this was a headache to them. We will be providing sanitary towels to them to ensure they have them whenever they need them. Parents and guardians are faced with more challenges which they address treating provision of sanitary towels to their girls as non-essential or basic need. We fully understand their situation and especially during this pandemic where their source of income are very much affected. In our capacity we will be supporting our beneficiaries with some of basic needs apart from paying their school fees. Thank you for continued support and as we continue supporting our beneficiaries, we count your contributions as well.
