We promote education for sociocultural change & economic prosperity through; scholarships, providing lunch and porridge to pre-primary pupils, improving learning conditions, facilitating orphans with stationaries, etc.
The year since this program kicked off has seen its expansion to a total of 14 centres, with the number of beneficiaries totaling 744 students of ages 4-7 years. New and varied learning opportunities have been available to the students. The program has also improved the digital literacy of the teachers. This program has been a significant achievement for the education department.
WF-AID ORPHAN SUPPORT
Support packages funded by WF-AID for 8 orphans were delivered to them. The packs included two sets of school uniforms, some miscellaneous items expected to last about six months and study materials. The guardians and their children were appreciative of the support extended to them, in light of the rising cost of living in the country.
LIGHTING FOR ALL
In most rural homes, families rely on kerosene lamps for lighting, releasing toxic fumes that affect the health of the family. The mission distributed 408 solar lights to students in madaris and pre-primary classes. Solar lights are bright and environmentally friendly. They will be a convenient study tool for scholars, especially at night.
FILL MY CUP PROGRAM
We are able to provide 739 cups of porridge per day to pre-primary students from Monday to Friday and 2,482 cups of porridge per weekend to madrasa students. The Feed a Child Program has led to increased energy levels in students, improved their ability to cope with a long day at school and boosted their Immune Systems.
The Lunch Program was introduced towards the end of the year at the 15 Bilal Kenya centres, with generous support from the Zahra Trust. 2,519 madrasa students and 683 pre- primary level students received hot meals every school day.
