As Juhudi children in Crisis we have been in forefront in making sure that our girls are safe and free from corona virus and also get the basic needs since schools are closed. Students are still at home waiting for the schools to be open when the virus is contained. It is our responsibility to make sure that this girls are safe wherever they are. We have provided them with masks,sanitizers and other necessary equipments, although is not enough to sustain them for the all period of the pandemic. 

We do appreciate you for your kind donations that has enabled us cope up with this covovid-19. We have taught girls about the precautions and  measures to take during this time of pandemic with their families. They have become the health ambassodors of their community by doing awareness. Although it has become difficult for us to run our day to day activity. Currently we just working from home.

Lydia and Ummy joins College It is with great joy to share with donors this good news of our beneficiaries who have joined college after supporting them to complete secondary education. Lydia has join Kitale national Polytechnic to pursue a diploma in Hotel and catering which was a dream course. On the other hand, Ummy will be pursuing diploma in Mass communication. As organization we are proud of these two girls for showing the potential in them. As an organization we will be hand in hand by ensuring that they pursue their education and get job. We therefore urge our able donors and well wishers to continue supporting us so that we reach more girls who are bright but they lack of school fees. They are at risks of dropping out of school and later become teenage mothers. Education is the only thing that will change their lives and become the change makers of the community.

 She is a form one student in one of the local secondary school. She leaves with her old grandmother in a small house since her childhood. Her parents abandoned her after birth. She has been raised by her grandmother until now. Her grandmother works in people’s homes doing cleanliness and other home chores so that she can get money for food and her grandchild school fees. She has only managed to pay part of her school fees being left with huge balance.The girl was sent away home to bring fees but she never came back to school until we came to her rescue of bringing her her back. She was almost dropping out of school.

As Juhudi children we felt so touched with her story and we promised her that we will support her by paying her school fees. We also talk to the head teacher of the school and agreed on the mode of payment of the fees. We believe that the girl will be able to study without any difficulties on matters of fees and other personal effects. We always believe that education is the only key to conquer poverty. Investing in education in the only way of uplifting the community. I want to thank our donors for supporting us all through this initiative. May God bless you abundantly.
