Congratulations to Irene Pronet who recently completed her university studies and will soon be providing medical care to patients in Tanzania. With the completion of her training, Irene will take up duties as a registered nurse. For the past decade, starting in secondary school, Irene received scholarships, mentoring and cash support from African Childrens Haven. Her mentor, Dr. Aichi Kitalyi, one of Tanzania’s foremost agricultural scientists and a member of our board, notes that the support she received made it possible for her to complete her studies and gain admission to one of the country’s most leading universities, but it was her determination that was the key to her success. Irene, a top student throughout her school, years, is a graduate of the Bethsaida Girl’s Secondary School, the only Tanzanian boarding school devoted exclusively to educating and caring for orphan girls. Bravo Irene.
The tractor project at Kenya's Mission With A Vision continues to generate significant income for the organization's work protecting girls from genital cutting and illegal childhood marriage. Its also helping the Mission to ride out the COVID emergency and distribute food supplies to poor families left destitute by the loss of jobs and livelihoods.
We wish to thank African Children's Haven for supporting us to distribute food this week . We were able to distribute food to 72 families. Thanks so much African Children]s Haven for supporting the food project and the milk distribution programe. We hope to do another distribution on Monday and hope that more people will be willing to help the many families that are going hungry due to the on-going health restrictions that have left millions in Kenya without food. We have already received some donations and we are targeting to distribute food worth $1500 in the next two weeks. During our yesterday's distribution we gave food to some families that had not eaten for three days. The situation in Kenya is very desperate in Kenya and we need all the help we can get. Please help us reach our target and feed 140 families next week by donating through the following link http://missionwithavision.net/?page_id=75 PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.
Each day the dairy herd at Kenya’s Mission With A Vision organization produces high quality milk that helps finance its work protecting teenage girls from genital cutting and childhood marriage. Because of the COVID emergency, however, the local market for milk has been cut in half and prices have dropped. To keep the Mission’s dairy operation afloat, African Childrens Haven is purchasing the Mission's unsold milk and distributing it to poor children. Each day, nearly 100 families receive up to three liters. It’s a small way of helping families in need and making sure that the Mission continues safeguarding girls well into the future.
All across Africa schools are closed because of the COVID virus and tens of thousands of teachers are out of work. So when school reopens, as it surely will, we want to make sure that teachers are ready. That’s why African Childrens Haven continues to fund the salaries of the hard-working teachers at schools like the Judah Educational Centre in Kenya. The school, which is located in Nairobi’s Mathare slum, does a great job teaching neighborhood children -- kids who might otherwise not get an education. Helping teachers stay safe and take care of their families is the least we can do to help.Your support makes that possible. Thank you!
