Guess what? Kenya has started opening schools for candidate students, grade 8 and form 4s, who are
going to sit for exams next year in March. Our candidates are back at the center and have been going to
school since 12 th October. This may also mean that the rest of the children could be opening schools
soon, the government is planning to do this between 26 th October and 2 nd November if all goes
accordingly. However, corona virus has spiraled in Kenya since the opening of schools and so we are not
sure what steps the government may take regarding this situation.
The weather in Kenya has been favorable and we have planted more vegetables this month. This has
helped us to save up on food and also balance our nutrition. We have been planning to extend our farm
so we can cater for the entire center and be self-sustainable. Our cows have been having challenges
producing milk because they were sick but they are slowly recovering, this may have been due to
frequent weather changes. The chickens are also increasing in numbers and we soon have to build a
poultry house to keep them secure.
With the children coming back, the Kenya team has been trying to prepare and organize for them. Our
team may start recruiting new volunteers and staff soon to cater for the children. Due to other
engagements, we regret to inform you that one of our Directors Amiel has resigned but he will remain
involved in some of our activities to provide his much needed skills and support. We wish him well in his
We would like to extend our gratitude for helping the children despite the global challenges we have all
been facing and the continued support that you have given.
This is a true excitement of IHF children exhibiting in this video below. They came to the centre when they were barely little girls, look now how big they have grown are now!
