struggling to bounce back from covid-19 challenges
By Nicholas Wanyama - Founder
Raise education center is trying to bounce back from the challenges of covid 19, we closed the school on 26/7/2021 and open again for the other term on 9/8/2021 then we learned and close again on 1/10/2021, and now we have open for 2nd term on 11/10/2021 whereby this term will run for 11 weeks until December 23/12/2021 whereby we shall break for Christmas holiday. Us of now we have a population of 420pupils of which is an increase due to the feeding program." I thank God for enabling me to be admitted to this center this is because in my former school we were not being offered porridge and lunch like here " this as to make me improve my studies through performing in exams. I don't want to miss school because when I miss it I will starve since in my former school sometimes there is no food like in this school. This was Bakari Mohamed expressing his views but not his real name "I thank the donors at large and GlobalGiving to ensure disadvantaged pupils like me in the society don't die from hunger. We still appeal for more support from the donors and GlobalGiving since the number of pupils increases day by day. In grade 5 they have been practicing CBC by cooking chapati and potatoes stew whereby most of the pupils know how to cook by now through raise education center support we also thank donors and GlobalGiving for continuing supporting us. " Am very happy to be in raise this is because through their Support and donors and GlobalGiving support I was an orphan for a long time I have never gone to school for almost 3 years, but here I was admitted free and given uniforms, books, and also free food and now am very sure my dream of becoming a medical doctor will come true," Juma Mwaboza not his real name. " I thank the donors and GlobalGiving to stand with raise education center in this support we still need more support as for instance, grade 1 did a practical of making beads the pictures are below, grade 3 also did practical mosaic and collage picture below. We got 3 scholarships from Safaricom M-PESA foundation the leading communication company in Kenya where they gave us scholarships for high school indexes 1,2 and 3. We thank donors and GlobalGiving for making us recognized at home, here, and worldwide. We also received 3 internship students from Saudi Arabia who are ongoing for internship from 20th September 2021 to December as they also do volunteering teaching, management, online fundraising on behalf of the Raise education center, monitoring and evaluation, resources mobilization and also assisting in the feeding program. Through their internship, our pupils will be able to acquire new skills for passing exams and acquire advanced knowledge from the outside world as we also thank the donors and GlobalGiving for this recognition from the Saudi Arabia internship . Saudi Arabia could not know raise without GlobalGiving and donors who still are of more support for our children in feeding programs and education. Our pupils did well in their previous exams, each class had an average mean score this is because of the feeding program which gives them humble time to concentrate with books when their stomach is taken care of. We appreciate the work of the donors and GlobalGiving to continue supporting us to ensure these children are found in school at all expected times. The children went for drama festivals up to provisional level and got number one. Grade one also did measurements in CBC and the pictures are below thanks to GlobalGiving and the donors at large for the support but we still appeal to the donors and GlobalGiving to support us in education and food because the number of pupils is growning up . Thanks in advance God bless you
