Our Kenyan Kids supports this project a minimum of three times per year, enabling them to buy food and medical supplies. In the past 7 months, we provided additional support on 3 occasions. In a normal year, the school would usually have enough stocked food for one month but in March when the gates were locked, churches and organizations that usually offer food and financial support were not able to support Gathaithi. We received an urgent request for assistance in April for food and medical supplies (hand sanitizer, dispensers, masks, gloves, therm-o-gun to take temperatures). Throughout the pandemic 29 children and 2 staff have remained locked in the compound. They have continued to provide food for over 50 children in the Outreach program every Sunday by placing food outside the gates of the school for the guardians to pick up. They have continued to grow kale, spinach and onions in the greenhouse and other vegetables in the small gardens tended by the children. In August, we were able to provide additional support for medical supplies and enable the purchase of seeds to support planting of crops for consumption and for income. The Kenyan government mandated that school reopen on October 12. The children have their temperatures taken each day, wear masks, continuously wash their hands and are diligent in maintaining all Covid-19 precautions.
