It was a great day for our girls after receiving sanitary towels as they break for christmas. We had an annual sport festival where it brought togther girls and children for sports. We had a number of sports activities which includes football,egg race,tag of war,sack race among others. It was a one day activity that started from morning to the evening. We invited somebody to talk to our girls about sexuality and other related diseases. Girls opened up and shared what they go through. We gave the girls the pads and soaps to help them at home so that they cannot depend on their boyfriends who are after their body. However, the sanitary towels and soaps were not enough for them,we intend to buy more for them when the money are available.
As organisation we are trying our best to make sure this girls are safe by educating them and helping them with necessary basic needs. We therefore i appeal to you our able donors to support us so that we can help this girls so that they cannot get pregnant while they are still in school. We also thank you for your continued generous support towards this project.
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.
How covid-19 has led many girls drop out of school
By LUCAS FWAMBA | Project Manager
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.
