Help AIDS orphans go to school in Kenya

by Mzesa Day Care Center

We thank God for this term which has been very difficult and he has seen us through. We have had many children who have been brought to this Centre by the Area Chief; who collects them from various places, but we that God because we have been able to feed and give them uniforms. We have also managed to assess them academically and have put them in fir suitable grades.

Through your assistances, we have managed to buy an extra Water Tank, bought mattress for the vry young ones; and we are appealing for assistance to buy other 2 Water Tanks to sustain the situation. We are also appealing for more volunteer   teachers as the ones we have are few and payment kof their stipends is now a big burden. But above all, we thank our donors, our friends and the community who are so faithful and who believe in what we do to this community. We pray to God to bless them so that in turn be a blessing to this Centre’


Thank you and God bless you,

We have had critical times at the Centre this term, but we thank God that we have seen ourselves through. When we opened for the Second Term, we have taken 10 children (girls ranging from 6 to 12 years) who have been sexually assaulted by their relatives from various household and put them at a Central home where we are monitoring them. We have then registered them at this Centre and provided them with uniforms, shoes, activity kits and food. We have taken them to various hospitals for various examinations and we are happy that the hospitals have agreed to wave off the bills.


We have had two ladies (friends of Mzesa Centre) who have come out to help them with sanitary and promised to do so throughout their education.

We take this opportunity to thank all of you who are donating to this Centre as we have managed to buy 8,000 litre Tank for clean water and now our children are happy and proud because the will not go around looking for water.

Thank you and may Our Almighty God bless all of you.

Beginning of this year has been very challenging with a lot of new children coming to this Centre. We have collected 8 children from various dumpsites and convinced them to show us their relatives and other siblings and located only 3 families.   We took them to the Clinic for testing HIV/AIDS, bought them uniforms, shoes, bags for their books now they are adopting school life. We have managed to register 5 of these children into a HOME FOR CHILDREN as we did not manage to identify their families. Though this is our testing period, through counsellig, loving and feeding them we pray that they will like the school-life and continue learning.

Our Baby Care Department also has more children than expected, which is also a challenge to this Centre. We do not have enough mattresses, milk and even porridge-flour  enough to feed them, but we are trying through your help. We have managed to buy a few kilos of powdered milk and kilos of porridge flour because of the kind help we get from you and we sincerely thank you for this gesture. Thank you very much. How do you think we can do better than this? Please help us with any idea We have Annette and Lynette (twin sisters) who can not do without milk and porridge. We have Trezer, Peres , Eunice, Lucy and Emily who came from Dumpsites and have a lot of needs like home-clothes, shoes, sanitary (apart from school needs) and are big enough to go on the street and dumpsites again and start prostitution.

We thank you so much our brothers and sisters who are seeing us through by donating. May God our Almighty bless you so much, so that you can continue blessing these children.



It is another term, a term which was full of  ups and downs.  We have experienced a lot of difficulties with pupils running  back to their usual dumpsites because of lack of food.  We have struggled with the food shortage and high cost of every food stuff.  But we thank our well-wishers and donors who have enabled us to go and  persuade these kids and have managed to bring them back to the Centre. This happened because we managed to buy sacks of dry maize,  beans  and rice for them.  We had gone round from store to store in such of these in vain.  For sure, thank you our brothers and sisters  out there who  are  helping us keep and teach these kids.  We pray for you and sincerely you will not lack anything  in your life.  Your donation makes a lot of difference to these kids.  I don’t  think we  could manage to keep these kids at this  Centre without  your help.  Thank you indeed.

We  also thank our  Area Chief and our Councilor   who called a Baraza (Area Meeting) and asked  everyone to get concerned with those kids who have gone back to the street and dumpsites.  He told the gathering  quote    Please go everywhere and look for these kids and bring them back to the Centre because if you will not do this, you will be grooming  a very bad society which will come back to this community and kill us.  Please get involved! Unquote.  When these kids heard that we now have enough stock of food, they agreed to come back to the Centre and we are happy that we closed the School when all of them are here.  We have even managed to order School uniforms for those whose uniforms are torn.  We have promised to supply them with a pair of shoes when we open in January and we are praying that we shall  fulfill  our promise, with the help of your donation. 

May God our Lord bless you  and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful and prosperous New Year.



After a long struggle with Food shortage, we have opened the School with a high turn-out of children.

We have had a long term which saw us feed more children than ever. We have had children coming along with their small siblings so that they can share their lunch. For sure the Feeding Program During our last meeting with the community, guardians and parents, the school was commended for the Feeding Program ; which was praised that the program has made a very big impact in the community. Robai, the mother to Eugine said: "For sure Mzesa has relieved me and others a lot by feeding these children". As Mzesa family, we deeply thank our donors and well-wishers for their donations and prayers. We humbly pray that you continue with your wonderful support which is making a wonderful difference in our community. We are undergoing a very difficult time with everything expensive yet we have to maintain these kids in school. We have to provide them with ARVs, Uniforms and other welfare necessities. We also thank the community for their involvement and pray that we continue in the same spirit.

Teachers have also put in a lot of efforts by working extra hours in order to prepare our class 8 who are preparing for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination at the end of the year.
