This year’s SEAM programs took off with a re-energized focus on the Self Educational Activities and Mentorships. Our children gained a lot from educational trainings on topics such as climate change, food and nutrition, HIV/AIDS, self-sustainability, community economic development, and behavior change among others. These trainings were organized through group discussions and presentations guided by our mentors and invited guest speakers. Our children have also been introduced to general computer skills by the ICT department which has impacted their knowledge on how to access the internet for SEAM’s educational trainings and learning purposes.

The SEAM mentorship programs have also focused on Arts & Crafts by a visiting artist who took the children through one-on-one art sessions to discover their talents. The children have also been introduced to yoga exercise for better health by SEAM mentors. The Horticulture Club has been going through gardening mentorship on how to prepare a garden for planting. Some of the SEAM children have adopted this knowledge to start kitchen gardens in their homes to promote self-sustainability. Similarly, the SEAM Horticulture Club had a flower sale with the Kisumu Horticulture Society where the children were given the opportunity to sell their flowers and to learn more about business strategies. Not to forget a garden tour to educate the children on different gardening techniques and to gain professional gardening knowledge.

Finally, we have recently introduced the children to book-keeping and accounting, by giving each child a passbook where they record any money they make from sales and to track on their expenses and savings. Thus, the children have learnt on the importance of book keeping.
