The Raising Voice Phase II commenced shortly after the disbursement of funds by GlobalGiving on the 26th of January. We have been conducting our weekend photography classes for 2 hours each day. Our trainings take place at Mathare Foundation offices. Every Saturday and Sunday we have been offering both theory and practical sessions in photography. The participants have been getting meals after the trainings because they come from a home that getting even 2 meals in a day is a big challenge. This motivates them to attend classes regularly since they are assured that their meal will be taken care of by the Mathare Foundation. The donors who contributed to this initiative have made the children to be very active and happy. We have also paid 4 months up front for our rent. We have paid from January to April. This means we are covered in terms of the venue where our photography sessions take place. This is big plus for us an organization. We are able to conduct our activities smoothly because we are not in any debts. The two-photography trainer’s allowances have been covered. This motivates them to come to the class more frequent because they have something to take home and something for their upkeep. We now can see the energy and the children are getting the best out of them. I would say generally that the GlobalGiving funds that we have raised has boosted the morale of everyone in the project. The spirit is very high than never before. The work that the young lads are doing is very incredible. This is something to be proud of.
We want to take this opportunity to state categorically that this is a progressive project, which without any doubt is bearing fruits and the talent we are nurturing is through the possible support of our donors from all corners of the world. Without you there is no us. Thank you our donors and thank you GlobalGiving.
