Peter

When we met Peter he was still at Secondary School and very stressed.  His father had recently died and after the funeral his mother disappeared leaving him to single handedly raise his three younger brothers.   With no-one to support him he struggled to provide food and pay school fees whilst continuing his school studies.  We assisted Peter with food and basic requirements and sponsored his youngest brother to an education at Roko 20.  We also sponsored his two brothers at nearby schools. 

Not surprisingly Peter left school with poor results.  In January we employed him as a farmworker at Roko 20 and he has proven to be a keen and committed member of staff.  He planted tomato seeds in the school's greenhouse and recently had a bumper harvest of tomatoes which supplemented the school's lunch programme and also brought in an income as he sold to the community.  He is learning many new skills and currently is learning to drive.  Peter's situation has changed for the better and he is now happy supporting his family and has even bought a goat, some hens and rabbits.

Goat Project

The goat project allows parents and guardians of our sponsored pupils to receive an income and provide milk for their family.  The first born kid is given to another family in need.  Peter is now managing the goat project which has a total of 15 recipients.   We purchased two female goats for the school's own use to provide milk for our lunch programme. 

Uniforms

The number of pupils sponsored at Roko 20 has increased to 54 with a further 4 being sponsored at other schools. Each child receives a uniform, books, stationery,  shoes, underwear, a jacket, food and basic medical care.

Library

Our library is really coming along and we now have a number of donated second hand and new books.   The class is made from stone and is cool and bright making it the ideal space for reading.  We have employed a part time library assistant who is also improving literacy with early morning and afternoon remedial reading practice.

Our success is down to you because without your generosity and support we would not have the resources to serve our community.

A big thank you from us all at Roko 20.
