Motivated Staff pillar of growth to an organization

A teacher motivating children
Sheepcare community centre has been committed to transforming lives in poor communites through provision of quality education, health, water ana sanitaion and feeding programme. This has caused potentials to children who would have left school complete secondary or university level and become responsible citizens. The key to this - MOTIVATE STAFF! We have a total of 51 volunteer staff who have come on board to help achieve this course.
Being that they have dedicated their time and talents to be part of this vision, there is a great need to give them some stipends at the end of the month to carter for their needs so that their families would not be affected by the fact that they gave themselves to this course, however this is not done at any predetermined rates and only based on the availability of funds, which we heavily really on donors and the GlobalGiving Campaigns.This has led to uncertainity to some of the staff who have always opted out in search of greener pastures. GlobalGiving Foundation has been of greater help to us, since through the campaigns we have been able to raise money to pay the staff occasionally.
On behalf of Sheepcare Community Centre, I take this opportunity to thank you for putting a smile on the face of our staff at least for the month October 2023. Through the September Little by Little GlobalGiving campaign we managed to clear some salary arrears and sustain the feeding program and enables girls to have some sanitary towel and inner clothes.
Our desire is that our supporters may commit something small every month because staffs need to be paid monthly. Already we have a committment of an average of $600 which will pay 5 staff. Imagine having ten (10) such donors per month, staff arrears would be a thing of the past and we will witness what a motivated staff can do! Our performance would improve and many pupils and Students would have a great future as they finish successfully and be responsible.
We are glad to share with you our joy and appreciation for the impact of your support. Without it our staff would not have been motivated to make our children be the subcounty champions and now are poised to compete at the County level, then the national level if they keep the winning spirit which I foresee they will.
They deserve to be encouraged and given a surprise gifts of motivation. Despite this great work, we have had challenges in meeting their monthly staff pay which is currently over 0.6 million Kenya Shillings.
We thank you very much for your consistent giving to help us make them more productive. We also trust that we will be able to make them comfortable when they go for national competition which will obviously need the expenses in accomadtion, transport and enabling them acquire more academic materials for their success.
The written word of God says that two people cannot walk together until they agree and also without vision people perish. Job satisftaction is beyond just well-paying of the staff but making them understand and appreciate the vision.
We started our organization 20 years ago as a non profit organization not because we had the money but we were touched by the school age going children scavenging for food in the dustbin without going to school! We decided to gather some of them who were "doing nothing for nothing" and challenged them to do "something for nothing" which was much better than doing nothing for nothing 24/7!
It is on this background that most of our staff joined the institution and paying them has never been easy but that has never dumped their spirits and determination to see real transformation and hope for the poor community. As the institution grow, it has been our desire to keep them understand the vision we had and this has made us do external or internal staff training whenever we are able.
A trained staff is key in building the capacity. As we do internal training, we want to appeal for assistance to train two of our staff in a profesional teachers college. We appeal for your willingness to assist. If you are willing, you can side chart us on my private email: email@example.com for further details.
Otherwise we appeal for consistent monthly givers to help us continue to pay our staff consistently to realize our vision more faster.
Thank you for your great sacrifice over the years yet more is still needed to get greater impact.
