Happy days and sad days

Day of the African Child 16th June 2022
Day of the African Child 16th June 2022

Since we last reported a lot has been happening at the World of Work (WOW) project. Over the past couple of months we have welcomed, for the first time, some girls into our programme. in addition to the usual daily activities on Monday and Wednesday we now have Hair and Beauty sessions with the girls. 

Last month one of our  WOW group 2 members Emmanuel died tragically. This was a sad time for the team and our members. On Saturday 11th June Emmanuel was laid to rest in an emotional and fitting ceremony attended by most of the street connected youth of Kitale. Following the burial we facilitated about 240 street connected children and youth to celebrate Emmanuel's life by going for an afternoon outing of lunch and swimming. 

We continue our weekly sessions at the museum for music and cultural activities as well as clean ups and painting of signs and murals.

Three of our current group have recently been housed and three have moved on to the next stage in putting into practice World of Work skills. One youth is running a small business selling second hand clothes and two others have begun learning the practicalities of the catering world.

At our compound we now have a German Shepherd pup, a kitten, 2 rabbits and 3 chickens which the youth now look after as well as the garden. 

On behalf of the WOW team we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have donated towards this work.
