We convey our warm greetings to all our friends who have been journeying with us on this noble course.
Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, Kenya was also adversely affected by the pandemic. As a result, on 16th March 2020 the government of Kenya ordered closure of all schools. Due to government’s sanctions meant to mitigate spread of Covid-19, TRLF field reps have since then been not able to visit schools hence being not in a position to gauge student’s progress as triggered by the Solar lanterns.
Furthermore, the Kenyan government is relaxing the restrictions, thus we’re optimistic that schools will re-open latest by early January 2021. As a result, TRLF is hoping to continue with the Solar Lanterns project in reaching out to more deserving students in the interior. For instance, TRLF has so far received requests for Solar Lanterns from Kitere and Minihaj Secondary schools which aren’t connected to electricity. We therefore look forward to continue helping such students with the lanterns for realization of their educational goals.
Lastly, we thank all donors for journeying with us in lighting rural homes through Solar Lanterns for a brighter future of our students in the Tana Delta of Kenya.
