FOOD. HEALTH. OPPORTUNITY.

Dear Valued Partner:

First, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are well.

Thank you for making a difference to school children in rural East Africa by supporting fish farming programs. Your support makes it possible for more than 1,000 school children in rural Kenya to receive a meal of fish each week. School youth are involved in all aspects of the fish farming program from feeding, catching with nets, cleaning, and best of all, eating! Fish provide high quality protein to growing school children and youth. Thank you for making this possible!

Wishing you continued good health.  

With sincere gratitude,

East African Children’s Fund

Dear Valued Partner:

First, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are well.

Thank you for making a difference to school children in rural East Africa by supporting fish programs. Your support makes it possible for more than 1,000 school children in rural Kenya to receive a meal of fish each week. Fish is a high-quality protein, rich in essential micronutrients such as iron, zinc, vitamin A and fatty acids. In our partner schools, children stay healthy through proper and adequate nutrition. Healthy school children are better learners!

This Father’s Day, please consider casting a wide net with a gift for your dad by supporting fish farming programs for school children.

Thank you! Wishing you continued good health.  

With gratitude,

East African Children’s Fund

Dear Valued Partner:

First, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are well.

Here are the highlights of what you made possible since our last report:

  • All school fishponds have been cleaned, and one has a new liner.
  • Three school fishponds have been restocked with 20,000 fingerlings.
  • The fish from the ponds are served to 550+ school children and youth twice weekly and 340+  school children and youth once weekly. Fish is an excellent source of protein for growing bodies and minds.

Our 3 partner schools in Kenya remain in quarantine for almost 1 year now as a protection from COVID-19. These schools serve as both homes and schools. EAC Fund continues to support almost 2,000 school meals daily with food from our food security programs. You made it possible for the fish farming programs to thrive. 

There are many inspiring organizations so we’re humbled and grateful for your past support. Thank you! 

Wishing you continued good health.  

With gratitude,

East African Children’s Fund

 

P.S.: 100% Direct Giving: 100% of your donations supported school feeding and farming programs for disadvantaged children in East Africa.

Dear Valued Partner:

     First, we sincerely hope that you are well. I write to update you on the impact of your generosity for disadvantaged school children in Kenya, East Africa.

    Our 3 partner schools in Kenya remain in quarantine since March to protect the children from COVID-19. These schools serve as both homes and schools. EAC Fund continues to support meals for 540+ children and youth, or almost 1,600+ meals each day. Our farming programs deliver fruits, vegetables and fish to 990+ children. You made it possible for these fish farming programs to thrive, and to boost the children's nutrition. Children perform better in school when they are healthy with full tummies. Thank you for making a difference to these children! 

      There are many inspiring organizations so we’re humbled and grateful for your past support. Thank you! Wishing you continued good health.  

With gratitude,

East African Children’s Fund

Dear Valued Partner:

     First, we sincerely hope that you are well and safe. This is a strange and frightening time. Understandably, we are focused on the impact of COVID-19 with our own loved ones and communities. More broadly though, I write to update you on the impact of your generosity to EAC Fund and how our partners are responding to COVID-19.

   As a reminder, EAC Fund focuses on improving the nutrition and health of disadvantaged school children in Kenya through school meals and farming programs. Although schools in Kenya closed in March, we continue to support feeding and farming programs for almost 1,000 school children who remain on site at three boarding schools. These schools serve as both their homes and schools year round. The food security programs produce a variety of nutritious vegetables and fruits, as well as raising pigs, chickens and fish. Thank you for making a difference to these children through your generous support!

   Here's the situation with our partners: 

  • Kenya's borders are closed so no additional food can be imported. Food prices continue to escalate.
  • East Africa, including Kenya, experienced it's first locust invasion in 70 years. This first round of locust left their eggs. A dreaded next round of young locust are expected to cause even more damage, exacerbating the food insecurity of the region.
  • Your recent donations ensure that school children receive a nutritious meal boosted by a piece of fish, at least weekly. In Kenya, health care is received through adequate and proper nutrition. Thank you for making this possible.  


      There are many inspiring organizations so we’re humbled and grateful for your past support. Thank you! Wishing you continued safety and health.  

With gratitude,

East African Children’s Fund
