COVID - 19 UPDATE

The year 2020 started well and as an organisation we were very optimistic in several ways. The month of March changed all the plans due to the covid 19 pandemic. All the high schools were closed abruptly and the students sent home immediately.

Our students' education has been affected despite the government's efforts in introducing online learning. This idea has not worked for the children living in the rural areas because of the internet cost involved. In rural areas not many families own TVs nor Radios and this rules out media learning for most of our high school students.

However most of our students are doing well and they are all fine. The good news is that none of our students has been infected by the virus. We have encouraged them to adhere with the governments directives and stay safe.  We can say they have been affected directly especially those who depend on the meals served at the school. The prices for all the commodities have increased by more than fifty percent and its hard for many families to have food on their table. We have just planted and still waiting to harvest in August or so. 

We have a huge burden especially for our children living with guardians and the widows. We have worked tirelessly to see that they have at least one meal per day. We have been able to do food distribution to not only families we support but to more than 200 widows. I would like to thank those who have continued to do a monthly donation, this has helped us serve the orphans and the widows especially during this pandemic. 

We are humbly calling for more support to enable the widows and orphans have at least a meal.  Please share with friends and feel free to do a one time donation to help us during this pandemic. 

On e again thank you for your continued prayers and support.
