A New Year 2022 is here with us and we are happy to be safe and healthy. The year 2021 was really challenging to all of us and learners experienced change of school calendar which resulted in cutting short their holidays. Since they reported in January, they have been having short holidays unlike before. Though the learners were not happy with the crush program, parents on one hand were happy with the program but unhappy on the other hand. The positive side was that students remained busy with their school works and activities and had little time to be involved in bad behaviors and bad companies. The negative part was that they had to pay school fees 4 times in a year unlike before where they paid 3 times and the time was too short for them to source school fees. Most of our girls in our program were in school most of the times as we ensured they had enough sanitary towels and most of them improved in their class performance. Trainings conducted also played a great role in shaping the young girls and we are optimistic that we will have more positive impacts. The training will be on-going this year and together with our partners we will continue fundraising so as to conduct even more such training even in other affected areas. Schools have resumed after short December holiday and we hope all our girls who are our beneficiaries will all report. Previously we have been receiving negative reports from teachers of several girls dropping out of school due to pregnancies or early marriages especially during long December holidays. We expect reports from teachers in different schools next week. Candidates in primary and secondary schools will be sitting for their final national exams in March 2022. This being the case, the school term will be pretty short and outsiders will not be allowed in the schools compounds in the course of the term to give room for exams preparations and enough time for revision. In this case we will not conduct trainings in the schools as it has been trend but parents will be trained and trainings in schools will be conducted once they resume in May 2022. This will give us enough time to continue fundraising for the trainings and for the reusable sanitary towels which will be distributed once the resume. We humbly request our well-wishers, friends and partners to consider contributing to this project so as to continue supporting our girls. We appreciate all the support given to our girls and our women group and for sure we have made them smile. Thank you very much for your generosity we always count on you for our success.
