It is with great honour to report back to our partners for the good work you have done since the inception of this project.The project has helped many teenage mothers who had dropped out of school. Today we are celebrating their achievement after accepting to go back in school and complete their secondary education. I want to share the impact of the project. These year we managed to get atleast 5 girls joining university to pursue their dream courses in different university in Kenya. Chebo is one of the girls who promised not dissapoint us. She managed to get a B plain grade in her KCSE exam last year. She has joined Nairobi university to study Bachelor of Education Arts. As organization we look forward to support her until she completes her education.

On behalf of the organization i want to thank everyone who has supported this project. If you were not you people those girls would not have reached where they are now. 

We are planning to enrol other girls to the project because there is alot of girls who have dropped out of school due to pregnancy and lack of school fees.

Since covid-19 started and spread everywhere in the world,we have experienced alot of challenges especially in running our projects. Schools were closed due to pandemic leaving our children in the community. It wasn't easy for the parents and guardians to look after them. Most of this children were exposed to the world which led to behaviour change. Most affected group was teenage girls who had no idea of out of school life. Many cases of early pregnancies and marriages were witnessed. Others were forced to get married at that tender age due to pressure from their parents. As organisation we had to chip in to rescue this girls from getting married. It was a big task for us since the cases were so many. We launched a campaign of taking them back to school after taking over from their parents and guardian.Most this girls did their national exams and passed well waiting to join university and colleges. We look forward to support them fully until they achieve their dream.

I therefore, want to thank our well wishers and supporters for your continued support alsways. It has enabled us to reach more girls.Thank you so much.

Dear Donors,

Happy new year 2021. I take this opportunity on behave of Juhudi children in Crisis to appreciate every donor who took part in supporting our project,"Rescuing 100 girls from early marriages in Kenya". Your donations has really helped us to sustain the project which was going to collapse in 2020 due to the pandemic of covid19 outbreak. Our project is now doing very well. Our beneficiaries have returned back to school learning. However, we have register many pregnancy cases where most of the girls who are outside the project are pregnant and they cannot go back to school until they deliver. We have accomodated them in the project to support them go back to school after delivery.

In the year 2020, we have been working outside the office but now we have resumed back and we hope that the pandemic will not affect us again. We intend to have large number of beneficiaries this year because of this girls who are pregnant and need to go back to school and finish their education. 

We hope this year we will cover what we had lost last yaer. We look forward in updating you on our progress as we work together to help this teenage mothers,Thank you so much and God bless you abundantly.

Dear Donors,

I want to take this opportunity to share with the progress of our project “Rescuing girls from early marriages”. It is my pleasure to inform you that we are doing well despite of corona virus pandemic. I can say that it has affected our project since our target group is girls. The girls are still outside school after the government closed the school due to corona virus outbreak. Most of the girls are idle home and it has become difficult to accommodate but the little funds we got from you donors has enabled has to organize some small activities in the community so that we can keep them busy as we wait the resumption of schools. One of the activities we have done is having them community forums whereby they discuss matters that affect them. Also we engage them in community service like cleaning. We have also helped them to acquire personal effects like sanitary towels, soaps among others. Other girls we have supported them to start small business to sustain their families.

On behalf of the organization, I would like to thank everyone who has supported this project to this far. Despite the challenges we have faced together of the corona virus pandemic, you have remained supportive until now. Thank you so much.

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.
