Dear parners,

The help and support received from you has enabled us continue to provide porridge flour to three primary schools which are Kiangoso,Kiabiraa and Nyangorora primary schools. Although finances have been limited, atleast following an agreement with the school administrations of the schools we opted to reduce the provided 50 kg porridge flour to 40 kg which is distributed every month to the schools for the ECD children who mostly are orphans. We realised that most of the orphans were wearing tattered uniforms and were in need of new ones. Together we identified the orphans in the 3 schools whose uniforms were tattered and required new ones, they were 33 in number, these were the ones in Early Childhood Education (ECD) classes.

We organized a tailor who came to the schools and measured the children for their uniforms, he proceeded and tailored 33 full uniforms for the children, these took the whole of August which also happened to be school closing season. In September when the schools reopened, we went to each of the schools on the 1st parents day of the new term and presented the uniforms to the orphans. The joy and smiles expressed from the children who received the uniforms was encouraging and breathtaking. The orphans looked absolutely revitilised and energised with a new spirit and encouraged every pupils in the schools. The caretakers and relatives of the orphans expressed their gratitudes towards your assistances.

" Am so happy to have received this uniforms, i now look new", Jay Moraa, an ECD orphan

Every one of us had someone to take care of us when we were little children, let us help this orphan children who only has YOU and ME find happiness that we had.
