Putting Smiles on Pupils' Faces

By Judith Opieba | Project Leader

Warmest greetings from Mwiyenga Primary School! We so appreciate your Love, Compassion, Kindness, Generosity, Empathy and true Love for humanity. VPIA is a wonderful association that is putting smiles on pupils' faces. We are deeply grateful for what VPIA and its donors have contributed to our physical, emotional and financial support.  We are happy to report the following:

  • Water is now in plenty
  • School uniforms and fees for the pupils entering school are more readily available
  • Teachers have become more sensitive, generous, empathetic, kind and loving
  • There is no use of a cane in the school
  • High performance has become our norm
  • We are now one large united family of teachers, parents, and pupils
  • Due to our good performance, well-wishers came forward who have built 4 new classrooms
  • Many more students have gone on to attend high school due to teacher support from our benevolent kitty

We have joined compassionate support groups where we support one another. At our gatherings, we share about the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project. We move from place to place spreading Virtues to different parts of Kakamega County, from Bukura, Mumias, Butere, Vihiga, Siaya, and the list goes on. These groups were started by another virtue program here, Virtues and Community Development for Kenya, following Virtues training. Kudos to Virtues programs! 

We continue to enrich ourselves by meeting every Tuesday in our Virtues Club where we share experiences and take learners through the Five Strategies. During meetings, and on Mondays, we do a Virtues Pick where we choose a virtue that is to be practiced by both teachers and pupils. This has made our school a very child-friendly school.  

We appreciate your kindness and generosity that helps boost our benevolent kitty, supports tuition and uniform costs and funds small projects so that we can continue to put smiles on our pupils' faces. You make a difference!
