It has been wonderful to have all the children in school and in good health. The monthly exams went well and the final semester exams were great. The eighth grade pupils had their tests with other schools and they were position five out of 23 schools. We had the best girl overall and best pupil in math. Pupils in other classes did very well in their overall exams and we are proud of you all. You might wonder why we say we are proud of you but the answer is YOU make it happen. The children enjoy the good environment and are well fed, this makes learning enjoyable.
During the holidays all the sponsored children both primary and high school had a mentorship program. This program gives them an opportunity to meet and share about their schools and what they want to do. They share their stories and their experiences in high schools. The students are given guidelines in choosing their careers and the subjects to concentrate on. They are educated on how to live purity life and enlightened on other things that can tamper with their education. The program was very successful and we had 150 children who participated. We are hoping the other 120 will have an opportunity to attend as we are finding sponsorship for them
They are all looking forward to the new dining which will be in use next semester. They are motivated and this is because of YOU. Your support and commitment is making a big difference in the lives of the needy and the entire community. As we await the second semester we encourage you to keep the word going, we have new orphans who Have been admitted in school and we will be happy if we can find sponsorship for them. It's through YOU that we find more sponsorships and we appreciate.
Share with your friends the good work you are doing in the lives of the needy. This gives an opportunity to reach out to more as the need is huge and we help where we can. Thank you
On behalf of Tumaini fraternity I would like to thank you for kindly sponsoring our children and organisation. We truly appreciate your continuous support and your very generous donation, with your help children are continuing to receive quality education in a very conducive environment, clean water, meals and basic healthcare. We are not left out in computer learning as YOU have made it happen in the rural areas where monitors are still seen as television sets by many of our rural children.
Just to share with you the updates, last year we had thirty two (32) students who graduated from primary school and are joining high school this year. All of them past their exams and have been admitted in very good schools in the country. We have fifty eight(58) continuing with high school and two hundred and six(266) in primary school. Our first group of students graduated from high school last year and have six (6) of them have joined university and 9 joined other tertiary colleges. In the year 2017 we had a total of fifty eight children and 9 babies in our children home. We are glad that we managed to reintegrate some of the children and all the babies were given to families for adoption/foster. We are trying our best to support the children while they live with their guardians and give opportunity to the abandoned and most vulnerable in the children home. Currently we have 48 children in our children home.
We thank you for giving our youths a second chance in their hopelessness. As many try to think that only young children are perceived as orphans, you have gone an extra mile to help the youth who lost parents and never had a chance to proceed with their education and are 18 with no hope but willing to do something. YOU are not only changing their lives but you are changing the community in general because the youths have something to do and are no longer dangerous to the community.
Without your involvement and generosity, we would not be able to aim high and reach our potential. It is because of YOU that the children, youth and the entire community is changing for better. We know the economy is tough, but you are going an extra mile to invest your hard earned money in the lives of the less fortunate. The needs are un bearable but we do what we can, we kindly request you to consider sharing with your friends, family, church and even organizations about the good work you are doing in Malava Kenya– share the link on your blogs, or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature or just bring us up in conversation. We can’t help all but when we share with others we will continue to reach more one at a time.
Words are not enough to express what you are doing, but thank you once again for your generous and continuous support May this new year be filled with blessings and happiness.
It is another time we are approaching the end of the year. I take this opportunity to thank you all for your commitment, sacrifice, prayers and support for Tumaini Miles of Smiles family. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, there are no words enough to express what you have done.
This year we have 280 pupils in the primary school, 120 children are sponsored and 28 are sponsored through global giving. We appreciate you so much for what you are doing in the lives of these children. Through your support these children are able to get quality education, have a meal at the school, basic healthcare, school supplies and uniforms above all good morals foundation and hope in their future. Many orphans and poor children can’t access and languish in poverty with no hope. Lack of school uniforms makes a child not to go to school and even drop if a solution has not been found. What you are doing in the lives of these children is a mark that will never be forgotten. YOU ARE CHANGING LIVES!
We had 32 pupils who did their National Primary exams and our schools were among the top 10 in the county. The marks are out of 500 and 27 pupils had above 300 marks. They are all joining high school except for one who will be joining the trade school. This would not have achieved without YOUR commitment and support, YOU have made these children perform better, its all about the environment YOU have given them.
We had a children’s camp in the month of November and the camp was successful! The children had an opportunity to meet other children from all over the county. The children had an opportunity to learn and be aware of things that can make them be the best children with a brighter future. They had a wonderful time just being together and getting the knowledge they need outside the classroom.
We are approaching Christmas and Global giving is giving an opportunity on the matching. Christmas is the only time that most of the children eat good food and sometimes this good food is not on their table. We encourage you to use the global giving platform to give and make a child to have a meal!
Once again we thank you for being part of our family and for being there for us. Thank you for CHANGING LIVES in the disadvantaged communities.
