The last few months have been very busy for all of us at LEI!
We are still fundraising for the new classroom of the Living Positive Kenya Daycare Center, and are hoping to begin construction in Mid-October. The last big fundraising effort will be a dinner sponsored by LPK, held on September 20th at the Bounty Hotel in Ngong, Kenya.
The new classroom, four toilets and urinal will alleviate the current problems of overcrowding and poor sanitation. To learn more about LPK and the Daycare Center and our effort to help check out the project page!
As of July 2nd, Faraja Children’s Home was named a registered CCI by the District Children’s Office. As a registered CCI Faraja will now belong to a network of other children’s homes recognized by the Kenyan Government. The registration will also help the home when applying for federal grants, corporate sponsorship, and private funding. This is an accomplishment the home has been working towards for years and we are so happy to have helped them achieve this goal.
Last week Living Positive Kenya donated 40 new mosquito nets to Faraja Children’s Home! The mosquito nets were made by the women enrolled in the WEEP (Women Economic Empowerment Program) class and the materials were donated by HEART (Health Education Africa Resources Team). We cannot thank LPK and HEART enough for helping us help all of the children at Faraja!
We hope you will continue to follow the progress of all of our projects by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
