Dear Friends,

Happy New Year 2021! It is our hope that this update from Tana River in Kenya finds everyone of you well and in good health.

Schools in Kenya have re-opened on January 4th, 2021 after 9 months of unprecedented closure mandated by the government of Kenya beginning 16th March 2020.The government has imposed stringent measures to be adhered to by all learning institutions for the safety of the students while the Covid-19 pandemic continues.

The Ministry of Education has barred visits to schools by members of the public, until May 2021 subject to the Covid-19 situation in Kenya. As a result, Tana River Life Foundation (TRLF) will suspend carrying out its field trips until it is permissible to do so.

In 2021 TRLF is looking forward to helping more students in the interior of Tana River with solar lanterns so that they are able to continue with night studies at home. As previously mentioned in our August 2020 report, TRLF has received additional Solar Lanterns requests from secondary schools in Kitere and Minhaj which are not connected to the national grid. Hence, we are hopeful that in this year of 2021 we shall be able to provide an essential tool to the students to work towards achieving their educational goals and aspirations.

We are very grateful to all donors for their continued support to the students of Tana Delta, Kenya through their generous aid of Solar Lanterns. God bless.
