I also thank GlobalGiving and all the donors who stood with our children during this hard times, God bless you for the good work you are doing for our children" Mama Halima(not her real name)
We received 586 dollars last month and we managed to buy food for our children and purchase additional text books.

Thank you once again GG and our able donors for your generous contributions, we are very much open to host GG and any other donor to have a first hand experience of our work with Mombasa children.

The remote lessons are going on with more than 200 students benefiting on a weekly basis. This facilitates in enganging the students in education to avoid literacy level among them declining .

It is making him to be busy with class work at home and avoid idle time which could lead him to drug abuse here in Mombasa' Fatuma Mohammed(not her real name) a parent of class four pupil.
We thanks GG and individual donors for supporting us and we are still calling for additional support in ,masks,sanitizers , , computers, learning materials & operational support in offering remote lessons through revision papers , class four face to face lessons and sustainability to our feeding program.
