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.
The 8 beneficiaries have been on long holiday since late October and they are now preparing to report back to school as from 3rd January 2018. We received their 3rd term performance and it was very pleasing. We had 2 of them maintaining their 1st positions and the other one was 2nd. They were promoted to the next class which they will join in January. They have been proceeding on well during their long holiday and we hope they are now ready to continue with their studies in the next school term. We have been approached by many parents and guardians to consider supporting their children since they are struggling too much in educating their children. Unfortunately we are not in a position to add more beneficiaries since we don’t have resources to support them at the moment but we hope that next year will be more productive in terms of fundraising and if all goes well we will consider adding more beneficiaries from the most vulnerable households. We will work more towards fundraising so that we can support more students. We are so grateful to all our well-wishers for their kind contributions and we appreciate all the support given. We request them to continue supporting our initiative and we welcome others to join us on board to help educate the less privileged students and their families. As we conclude the year 2017, may God Bless You and open the doors for you in the New Year 2018. Happy New Year 2018.
Schools reopened for 3rd term in September 2017. All our 8 beneficiaries reported back to their respective schools and they are proceeding on well. Am happy to report that we are very proud of them since they are performing very well and we keep encouraging them to work even harder. We received results for their end of 2nd term examination where we had 3 students maintaining their first position in their classes. This was very encouraging and the beneficiaries reported that the support we gave them was very essential since they remained in school the whole term without being sent home for school fees or school uniforms. They said they were able to concentrate with their studies for the term and also their parents felt very relieved and they now concentrate on other family issues especially sourcing money for school fees for the other siblings and other basic needs. Our girls beneficiaries also reported that they were very happy to receive the recyclable sanitary towels as they are very effective and they don’t have to miss school during their periods as it was previously. They were happy as they don’t bother their parents or guardians any more during their days. We hope to support more girls with these sanitary towels as we realize that this is very challenging for the school girls in primary and secondary schools. We express our gratitude to all our supporters for their kind contribution and supporting the less privileged in our society. We will continue supporting them in all ways possible as we request all the well-wishers to consider contributing for the success of these and other students. Thank you very much.
Although the situation in Mukinyai was not really good in 2nd term, the situation has improved a bit as there were some rains and the farmers were busy in their farms although that could not help them much as it would not solve the immediate family needs but all in all farmers benefited from one way or the other.
As in the previous report, we conducted the need assessment in three secondary schools namely Mukinyai, Sachangwan and Koige. These schools are along Nakuru-Eldoret highway and the have high number of orphans and vulnerable children. The assessment was done to identify the most vulnerable students to be supported with the funds raised by kind donors on GlobalGiving. We are happy to report that we identified 8 students from the 3 schools, although the need was higher than that, we only managed to support 8 of them. We supported them with a set of school uniforms, shoes, text books and recyclable sanitary towels for the girls as well as school fees for 1st and 2nd term. During the assessment and distributions we learn from the beneficiaries, parents and guardians the many challenges they are going through we had stories from all 8 beneficiaries which were very touching. Some beneficiaries are living in very poor temporary houses and the kids have to walk very long distances to and from school every day. In their stories, some are going to school on empty stomachs
All the beneficiaries we identified are currently performing very well in school despite of being out of school most of the school days as they are sent home for school fees every now and then. They all promised to work very hard and those in positions 1 one will maintain the good performances. They were all excited when receiving the uniforms, books, sanitary towels and school fees. They confessed that their prayers have been answered and the expressed their gratitude to all those who have supported them and they hope that the support will continue till they finish their studies. They all mentioned the good jobs they want to do once they grow up namely doctors, pilots, lawyers and nurses. We encouraged them to work hard for them to achieve their goals and make their lives and that of their families brighter. We promised to support them up to form four if possible and we believe that together with the well-wishers we will keep the promise. I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all those who considered supporting this noble project and we hope that they will still consider extending their support to these students and many other.
The first school term is now and students and pupils are at home for April holiday. The term has been very challenging for many parents and students as reported by many head teachers from different schools. It has been extremely dry since January this year and farmers have been negatively affected as majority depend 100% on farming for their livelihood. Mukinyai farmers have had very rough time as they could hardly pay school fees for their children and most of them were sent home for school fees every now and then. The rains are yet and they fear that the second term might be worse but we hope the situation will improve.
Some guardians & parents were not able to support their children to secondary school after class eight as they were not lucky to receive scholarships from different institutions and donors. This resulted to the young youths searching for informal jobs and helping their parents in the farms to make the ends meet. Majority students were promised to be enrolled in vocational training centers by their parents and guardians but again not all were lucky due to the prolonged drought. They are still optimistic that they will have opportunity to either join secondary school or vocational training centers for skills development. We are happy that we have some donors who have contributed towards this project and we are in the process of identifying the most vulnerable children who we will support in education as we have limited funds to accommodate many. Thank you very much for this wonderful contribution which will support few orphans in their education. We continue fundraising and inviting all well-wishers and donors to consider supporting the most vulnerable children in their education. We are humbled by your generosity and may God bless you abundantly.
