Creating a better world through education
There are now (May 23) 1,192 confirmed cases of COVID – 19 in Kenya. On March 15, President Kenyatta closed all schools to try and stop the disease before it has a chance to strike what is already a vulnerable population. The latest information we have is that schools will remain closed until at least early September.
We decided the best way to keep our students nourished was to deliver food staples to them directly at home. Later, we changed from providing food directly to giving families vouchers which they could redeem at a nearby store for food. As of May 22, we have given over 4,500kg (9,921 pounds) of food and vouchers worth more than Ksh450,000 ($4,500) to 130 families. Currently, we are offering vouchers worth Ksh2,400 ($24) to each family every three weeks.
