The year 2019 started well and we thank God for this far.  Our students reported back to school for first term in January 2019 and they are now preparing to break for April holiday next week.  We have had a good school term and all our beneficiaries reported back and remained in their respective schools as expected.  We managed to pay school fees for all them and support some of them in boarding schools with personal effects and books for the whole term.  Thank you to all those who have been contributing to this project that has benefited vulnerable children.  As reported previously one of our beneficiaries did his final exams November last year and the results were released in December.  We are happy to report that he performed well and scored B- grade and as usual he was top in his school and he made us proud.  He will be joining university in August this year although they are yet to receive letters of admission in public university, we remain optimistic that he will be admitted in a good university where he will pursue a course of his choice.  We hope to support him in some ways once we know the university he will be joining and what will be required of him.  Although we don’t have money at the moment, we hope by the time he will be going to school we will have money for us to support him and we request all our well-wishers to consider contributing to our project to enable the dreams of this young man and other come true.  In the previous report we promised to report on the status of adding more beneficiaries in our program after receiving some good donations in December last year.  Am happy to report that we managed to add 5 more students in our program those who joined form one in January this year.  These 5 students 3 girls and 2 boys performed well in their final exams and they were admitted in good public schools and their parents and guardians were not in a position to take them to those schools due to limited resources.  They approached us and after several meetings and visits to their homes we decided to support them.  Although the number of needy students was higher than that, we could not manage to accommodate all of them and we had to consider the neediest and most vulnerable among them.  They all joined boarding schools that they were admitted and we hope to receive their progress reports and performance soon once they close school next week.  We hope we will have money to continue supporting them as we committed to support them for 1 year but if we receive more resources we will continue supporting them and possibly consider others.  Thank you to all our well-wishers, friends and partners for this far they have supported us.  Please accept our sincere gratitude as we request you to consider walking the journey with us even further.

We hope all our partners and well-wishers had fantastic festive seasons. We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our supporters for this far we have come together. Thank you for walking this long and tough journey with us and making it successful throughout the year despite the many challenges that we had on our way. Our beneficiary students have had a smooth year and they remained in schools as we were in a position to pay their school fees and provide them with uniforms and they were not sent home for school fees.  We are happy to report that our candidate sat for his final exams and the results were released just before Christmas but we are yet to receive his results which we are hoping will be impressing.  We are proud of him and we will support him in his university studies. In the next report we will update on the results and the way forward.  All the other beneficiaries were promoted to the next class and we are proud of them as they are performing very well.  They have had enjoyable long December holiday and they are now preparing to report back to school for 1st term 2019.  We intend to add more beneficiaries in 2019 who will join form one.  Some of them performed well and secured positions in good boarding secondary schools but some parents and guardians cannot afford to take them to those boarding schools due to the required school fees and other admission requirements and they opt day schools which are less expensive.  Some of them have approached us requesting for support and we hope to accommodate some of them.  We are very greatful for the donations contributed during December holiday and thank GlobalGiving for money disbursement.  We really appreciate as these donations and disbursements have come just the right time again we thank all those who generously contributed to this project.  We will have a meeting next week and discuss with the students, parents and teachers who have requested for the support then we will decide how many more students we will accommodate in the program.  The demand is high but unfortunately we cannot accommodate many due to the limited resources.  We will select the beneficiaries depending on families’ vulnerability and the students’ performance in just released national examinations results.  We will have a comprehensive report on this in the next reporting and we will update our donors on the progress. Together with beneficiaries, parents and guardians, we wish to take this opportunity to wish All a prosperous New Year 2019. May the year be filled with joy, love and good health and may your boundaries be extended as you receive more blessings and resources to continue sharing with the less privileged in our society. Thank you very much Happy Happy New Year 2019.

We are progressing on well with our day-to-day activities and our beneficiaries have not been left behind. The progress with our students from Mukinyai has been great the students were at home for August holiday and they reported back to school for 3rd term in late August. As usual they all brought their report forms with their performances and as reported the students are really working hard despite the many challenges, the term is the longest and during this period we had long rains in most parts of the country and our day scholar students had challenges to and from school but they managed. We are encouraging our candidate who is preparing for his final exams in November. I had a session with him when he brought his report form in the office and he still maintained his number 1 position and I am very optimistic the young man will perform well in his final exams. As earlier reported, we visited their families and we are happy to give them the materials mentioned in the previous report an act which was appreciated by all the beneficiaries and we hope to have many more support of any kind to share with the less privileged in our society. We will have students break for long December holiday later this month to give room for the candidates to sit for their final national exams in conducive environment and we hope that our beneficiaries will take good care of them during the long holiday which has many l.fe challenges. We intend to have a session with them to guide them on how to cope with the challenges during the long holiday and we are happy they are all very responsible. On behalf of the students, parents, guardians, teachers and entire Mukinyai community, we wish to express our gratitude for the support given by all our well wishers and pray for more blessings as we request them to extend the support so that we can accommodate many more in this program.

Our beneficiaries in secondary schools are progressing on very well and together with their parents, they are very happy as they no longer miss classes as a result of being sent home for school fees and uniforms.  The parents and guardians are now in a position to support the other family members as they appreciate that the burden is not very heavy now and they said thank you to the support given through the global giving and they appreciate everybody who has contributed to their success.  I met all the beneficiaries in April when they were on their holiday and we had a discussion with them and I was happy that they are very optimistic and they are working very hard to achieve their goals.  They all brought their school report forms showing their class performance for the 1st term of the year. I was impressed as they are performing very well and to be honest they are promising. One of them who is a candidate still maintaining his 1st position and the others being among top ten in their schools.  Am very optimistic that our candidate will perform well and secure a position in a good university.  Thanks to the support given through global giving, we were able to pay school fees for 2nd term for all them this was grate achievement. We intend to visit their families in the course of this week and we will be supporting them with blankets, mosquito nets, water buckets and water guards.  Our country has been affected by the floods and together with our partners and well-wishers, we decided to do an intervention of supporting the communities that we work with as they are affected by the heavy rains and just like in Kokwa Island, we give priority to the global giving beneficiaries as we already know their needy cases.  As reported previously, we had intended to fundraise more to accommodate more beneficiaries but we have not managed to get more resources but we remain more optimistic and request our friends and well-wishers to consider supporting our students through their education.  Thank you very much

Our secondary students beneficiaries reported back to school in January 2018 and they will be breaking for their April holiday soon.  We had two students transfer from their former school to new schools where they felt that the learning environment was more conducive than where they were.  The 2 girls previously in Koige secondary school felt that the environment was not good for them and there was less competition.  The 2 girls are Lucy and Joan,  we are happy that Lucy got a vacant in a boarding school where she have ample time to do her studies and prepare her to become a journalist as she wants to be.  Through global giving support we were able to cater for Lucy boarding fees, school uniforms, bedding and personal effects for the whole term as her single mother could not afford to take her to a boarding school.  Lucy was very grateful and she promised to work extra hard to achieve her dreams.  During half term break, she expressed her satisfactory in the new school and she appreciated the quality education being offered and the high competition and more so enough time to do her studies.  We hope to do more fundraising to accommodate more needy students in our program to ensure they get quality education.  Many parents and students have approached us requesting for the support but unfortunately we have not been able to support them due inadequate resources.  We welcome all to consider supporting our needy students to access quality education either in boarding or day schools.  We sincerely appreciate the support given through global giving and we hope to increase the number of beneficiaries.  Thank you very much.
