Our Children are back to the to center full of energy and lots of expectation for the year 2014. Many of them are moving to new classes and others are joining school for the first time, you can see hope and excitement on their faces.
The new ones have already been admitted to their respective classes and those joining high school are waiting for letters of admission.
During the chrismas break some renovations were done to their house with a pation put in thier dining area to shield them from winds blowing during the rain season that is about to start here.
Again we continue to thank you for your past support as we look forward to another exciting season of 2014 together making the lives of children better.
Christmas is approaching and with its coming are equal excitements and anticipations by our children as they finish their end of term and year examinations.
The exams are a very important aspect in thier current level, as many expect to move to the next level grade and so they are currently busy preparing for their examinations.
Some of the Children will be going home for a chrismas break, they will have a time to meet with thier cousins, uncles and unties many of whom are in other towns and only come home during chrismas time and so it's a good family time that only comes once in a year. They expect to learn a lot from shared experinces and exchange of goodies and gifts brought to them. It will be a good time says Anyas, one of our children looking forward to meet with her cousins who will be home during chrismas.
However there are those that will not go home since they do not know or have close relatives, they will be spending time in the centre. CRK organises for Chrismas party at the centre for them.
Once again we thank our supporters for giving a chance to our children to pursue life opportunities by your contributions.
Child Rescue Kenya Holistic approach in adressing issues that have led children to go to the streets includes;
- Bulding of relationships with families aimed at creating an environment that will eventually be comfortable for children to settle at home following up to ensure that emerging issues are settled on time and creation of supportive linkages with family communities,
- Family economic empowerment via techinical support in small scale farming for food security. CRK has facilitated on many occasions trainings that include visiting the agricultural shows within Kitale. Tremendous results have been reported and children reunited with their families.
CRK continues to rely on your support to carry out this noble work and calls upon you to contibute towards these goals especially now when Global Giving has matching funds to add to every cent raised via Global giving.
The second term calender went on smoothly with children doing their best in school work. During the second term we reveived guests who donated play ground equipment, toys and clothes for children. One guest also did buy food stuff enough to feed children for a month.
In the schools calender here, the 2nd Term that normaly starts at the start of May is mixed with both academic and co curriculum activities, these includes inter primary athletics competitions and music festivals. Our children were excited to particpate in these activities in thier school.
We plant maize in the centre for food and green maize roasting. There is always an excitement among children when time for roasting green maize comes, they always enjoy this excercise and so during weeding they gladly the enjoy weeding as they cannot wait see maize ready for roasting that would be ready in this next phase of school starting September.
During the August holidays visited their relations and friends . This Last week many have come back ready to embark on an academic tour. This will also be the last term in thier grades and many are upbeat to work hard to improave on thier studies.
Once again CRK thanks all for supporting Liyavo Children
The children at Liyavo have recently spent a month away from school for the holidays in April. They spent their time visiting members of their extended family and enjoying their freedom. Their reports showed improvement in performance for the majority the children so we are very happy. They are all now back in school for the second term. We would like to thank all of our GlobalGiving donors for assisting us in providing care for our children and ensuring that we can help them to attend school and lead happy lives. With donations we have received from a GG donor who has recently visited us in Kitale we are currently working with local suppliers to purchase a complete set of up-to-date primary school text books, at a discounted rate, for our children to use when they are studying at home. The same donor has also raised funds for playground equipment. The children have been making the most of the new roundabout and swing set and we hope that a see-saw will arrive soon (please see new pictures). This at Liyavo, year we have five candidates in standard 8. This is the last year in of primary school Kenya and the students sit their Kenya Certificate of Education (KCPE) exams in November. Our students are already looking forward nervously and will start attending extra classes at the weekends with a volunteer teacher to help give them a boost in their preparation. The grade they achieve at the end of the year will not only determine whether they go to secondary school or a vocational training alternative, but also which high school they will attend. In the last three months we have successfully reintegrated 17 children with their families. This is the ultimate goal that CRK has for all the children we work with. Liyavo provides a long term home for those children who require extra support and a longer time interval for this move. Each of the children receives regular visits to ensure that they have settled in, are attending school and are well supported by their families. The children were very happy to be rejoining their families.
