CHEBO GET SUPPORTED TO PURSUE HER EDUCATION

After getting your donations from you, we wish to share a success story for this girl who was at risk of dropping out of school because of school fees. Her mother died 3 years ago and was left with her father and 3 siblings. Being a polygamous family, her father abandoned them and moved to the first wife leaving them alone. They just depend on neighbors or well-wishers so that they can eat. She is the last born while the two brothers, one is in form 3 and the elder one is in the college. The girl is in form 2 in a day school. The life for them has not been easy after her mother’s death. As Juhudi we came in to help her by paying her school so that she can pursue her education.

 As an organization will make sure the girl gets what she requires in her education throughout her journey. We have seen her future is bright because she is a straight forward and focused girl. She is read to learn and acquire knowledge to help the society in future. It is our mandate to ensure such girls are supported fully. You find that those girls, who are neglected by their parents or guardians end up dropping out of school, get married early and also, become house girls.

We hope that through your support towards this project will enable us to reach more girls and support them fully. We really appreciate for your kind donations always. May almighty bless you abundantly.

A SUCCESS STORY FROM DESTINY

After getting your donations from you, we wish to share a success story for this girl who had dropped out of school and through your previous support she managed to go back to school. The girl is in form one doing very well in her studies. She is topping her class. Currently we visited her school to see how she is faring on. We witnessed her good performance and it was commendable. The girl has changed so much and she promised us to do much better to get quality grades to join university. She aspires to become a lawyer and help people in court to get justice.

As an organization will make sure the girl gets what she requires in her education throughout her journey. We have seen her future is bright because she is a straight forward and focused girl. She is read to learn and acquire knowledge to help the society in future. It is our mandate to ensure such girls are supported fully. You find that those girls, who are neglected by their parents or guardians end up dropping out of school, get married early and also, become house girls.

The girl has motivated the organization to reach more girls and support them. It will help us rescue more girls who are at risk of dropping of out because of the circumstances at home. Some families are very poor and they cannot be able to afford to pay fees for their children especially girls who are not considered to acquire education. We hope that through your kind support we will be able reach more girls who are vulnerable and at risk of dropping out of school soon.

It has been 3 years ago when she started her journey in secondary school. This journey had a lot of challenges on the way. The big challenge being school fees. She used to be send home to collect school fees which was not there since her single mother had nothing to give out. Her budget was only to cater for food for the family. That is where Juhudi children came in to assist the family by paying the fees since form one to date. She is now in form four expecting to sit for her national examinations this year. We have made sure her fees is paid in time so that she remains in school.

At beginning in form one the girl had lost hope for continuing with her education but her hope was restored by Juhudi again. We happen to visit the girl in school and have a discussion with her and teachers. She expressed her gratitude to us and we felt that it is also good to share with you well wishers for playing an important in this, by supporting our projects generously. This what she said “I can’t believe am in my final year completing form four. I want to thank all people who were behind my success especially Juhudi children for the kind support to me. May almighty God bless you abundantly to be able to reach more needy children like me.’’

As the organization we join hands together and also appreciate all our well wishers for making our project a success. We promise to reach more girls in the region to restore their hope in life. Thank you so much.

Kwamboka secures her place in form one 2018

It was a great joy when the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) were released by the Ministry of education. Kwamboka was one of the candidates expecting her results. After the results was out Kwamboka emerged to be the best student in her school, scoring 380 marks out of 500. She didn’t believe this until when the results were hanged in their school. She didn’t hide her joy as she expressed herself, “I can’t believe this, oh my God. I was not expecting to be the best student. I know am an intelligent student but not a top student. I want to thank my mum, teachers and Juhudi children for supporting me through this journey of my career. May almighty God continue to give you more to fill your pockets.”

Kwamboka is one of our beneficiaries in the project. After she had dropped out of school we took her back to school. She has now done her class 8 exam and passed very well expecting to join one of good national schools in the country. We us Juhudi we were very happy for her and we look forward to continue supporting her education up to the higher level. The girl is raised by a single mother who was affected by the post election violence 2007. The girl is very bright student and focused on changing the lives of her family and herself.

As an organization we will be hand in hand by ensuring the girl has pursued her education well. We therefore urge our able donors and well wishers to continue supporting us so that we reach more girls who are bright but lacks support. Most   of the girls out there are at risks of dropping out of school. Let us join hands so that we pull same direction.

Eliza is one of beneficiary of Juhudi children under the project, rescuing girls from early marriages. She has just completed her secondary education last year and expecting to join college this September to study Arts and music. She is raised by a single mother, and she is the first born child followed by other 4 siblings. We expect to support her to continue with her education journey successfully. Being much focused girl and determine to work hard and pursue her dream. She dreams to have her own music theatre in future and train other girls and also help her family. “I want to become a professional in arts and music and come up with a company that nurtures this youths who have talent in singing, dancing, performing and acting. I thank Juhudi for supporting me towards my dream,’’ said by her. She is also artist. She has recorded a first song while she was in secondary school, and she expects to record more songs soon.

As organization we look forward in helping such girls to empower their potential so that they can be important people in the society. Most of these girls when they finish school they get married immediately without thinking about their future what it holds. As Juhudi we say no  early marriages until the right time comes. We are planning to have program with them after they have completed secondary education. We want to make them to be focused as Eliza. They should understand that getting married early is not the solution of running away from problems. We need inspire and empower them to become responsible mothers of tomorrow.

All these will be achieved through your continue support that we always get from you people. It has really help us to rescue a lot of girls who had messed up with their life. As Juhudi we say thank you so much for your great support. May God bless you so much.
