Over the year Kenya had its elections. The elections brought about challenges as they were disputed making various communities react differently. This initially brought about challenges in the National Unity. However, we are grateful that these issues have been sorted out and we are enjoying a peaceful moment.

We are grateful to Kujali an organization from Switzerland for financial support without which we would not have managed to meet our objectives within the year. In addition we wish to thank our partners Diane Priestly, Matha and Dr Jim Ritchie and Dr Jason and Reel who supported painting of the center, provided food, clothing and creating of the Faraja website among other things. This support enabled Faraja continue to have its center open to children. These are children who have various vulnerabilities. Our activities included provision of nutritious meals, clothes, play material, reading books, school fees and opportunities to meet and share light moments together. We provided meals sometimes out of the center to enable children learn to share with one another and have time for outdoor games.


Teaching children on common illnesses such as malaria, waterborne diseases, personal hygiene and on how to preserve the environment empowered them to be change agents at home, school and at the community level.


We held a seminar for the young people to enable them acquire life skills. This went a long way in empowering them to make informed choices in their daily lives.


In addition some women met in the center to get information on nutrition, family planning and parenting and counseling on various issues

In collaboration with a friend of the center we have continued support a young girl whose mother died last year to acquire life skills in a polytechnic. We also supported those who are in school and are having challenges of raising school levies.

We wish to thank you all for your continued support which has made children look forward to another day. We sincerely hope that you will continue to partner with us in the days ahead.
