COVID-19 Update - April 2020
Although Kenya has, as yet, not recorded many deaths from CV19 the government is taking strong action around lock downs and night curfews. All schools were closed in March and teachers instructed to stay at home. We enquired if it might be possible to provide food for the Timboni children who are now missing school meals because of the closures but we have been advised that this is not possible.
We have also raised questions about how we as a charity might be able to assist once the school does reopen as normal. Can additional retired teachers be hired to assist catch up learning for pupils? Can the feeding programme be enhanced to boost children who have been missing out on the daily school meals? Of course we are not able to make any firm plans until the school knows what is happening and what decisions are made by the Kenya Government regarding schooling but, as soon as we have more information, we will update everyone on any action we can take..
Thank you to all of you who are continuing with you financial support, this will be important for the future whatever those support actions are.
Gordon Atkinson, Chair of Trustees
