Plans to reopen

Digging a trench inside the school compound
Digging a trench inside the school compound

We hope you are all keeping well and safe during these ongoing challenging times.

There are plans for the reopening of schools in Kenya in January; however, the Government have placed new rules to ensure social distancing and keeping children safe. This gives us a choice of either extending the classrooms (with obvious cost implications) or reducing class sizes. Although we could reduce the number of children we educate, we don't want to do that because the school specifically targets children who otherwise could not afford to go to school. Reducing numbers would therefore mean that in all likelihood the children would stop their schooling. Therefore we have made the decision, in the short term, to meet the cost from our reserves we hold and from the money raised from the most recent GlobalGiving Campaign.

This unfortunately also means putting on hold our planned teacher training programme. Instead we plan to deliver an internal Continuous Development Progamme in a low cost way. This training programme, supported by one of our Board Members and facilitated by our appointed teacher in charge of discipline, will address reducing violence in school with an 11 unit programme involving teacher centred discussions. At the end of the programme there will be an assessment which teachers will have to pass to receive a Completion Certificate. If this is successful we will follow the same method to develop learner centred teaching.

In other news the Government is installing large pipes for irrigation water in our community. The pipes will be passing through the school compound as per the attached photo. The white paint on the ground is where they are digging two foot deep.

This work has already started and trenches are being dug in preparation for the laying of these pipes. Unfortunately workmen have damaged the existing pipes and so currently we do not have any access to water at school. This means we are unable to continue growing vegetables on the school land and as construction workers are moving at such a slow pace we cannot guarantee when we will be receiving water again.

It's a big inconvenience but we hope this water project will allow access to a constant supply of water for many more members of our community.

It just leaves us to say that we appreciate how fortunate we are to receive such continued generosity and support from you, without which we could not progress in our mission.

Thank you!
