DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

The month of August 2014 started well with the highest population we have not seen since 2010.The population was more than 300. It is because of the quality care, teaching and the services the children get in the centre that made us get this increase in demand for the new admissions. Due to lack of spacious rooms, we had to block more than 50 children out of the centre of which their parents are not happy to date. We hope to have them back.

It is in the same month we received a donation of Kshs From our friends Nicolas and Claudia to aid  in  the running of the school programs.

All these have brought a big smile to the faces of these orphans and vulnerable children and the community at large.

As I speak now, the total population from day care to class four is 350 children, 10 teachers,1 cook and a cleaner, a director and a headteacher. There is therefore an urgent need to employ 2 more teachers, 1 cook, 1 cleaner and 2 security guards. The growth has been very good and fast thus an urgent call to buy rental units or building/ house  to accommodate more than 350  children and more  that we have blocked out since there is still high demand of the new admissions and also  make the school operate in its own environment  too ,have office, store,  kitchen ,toilet/latrine among others.

Our major problem as per now is the issue of The Kenya Rift Valley Railway Line that had given a notice for the buildings near the railway line to move 30m away from the railway line. This calls for an urgent action to look for a new place to allow for the new construction of the railway line to go on as soon as possible. We have therefore been organizing for the fundraising but all in vain since the cash I get go to feeding, purchase school resources/ uniforms and pay rent for the 3 halls that children learn in.

Besides these, I must say that we stand to work hard and see Brainstorm perform its activities to the best standards we can. I am optimistic that one day, Brainstorm will be in its own environment, have spacious classrooms, toilets, play field, office , kitchen and the store too; to allow for and accommodate the largest population we see now and even more .

May I therefore take this opportunity to humbly thank you Anthony Ethan,Nicolas,Claudia and and all who have contributed towards bringing a big smile to these young and vulnerable children and the community here in Brainstorm- Kibera.

THANK YOU ALL! THANK YOU ALL! THANK YOU ALL!

CHALLENGES

  1. Lack of money to buy a spacious space/land or rental units not only to have more and spacious classes to accommodate the children,but most importantly and urgently  to give room for the Kenya Rift Valley Railway Line to proceed with their construction  since we are also near to the Railway Line thus need to move 30m away from it.
  2. Lack of adequate supply of food to the children.
  3. Inadequate teaching and learning materials e.g books.
  4. Inadequate furniture and the kids plastic chairs or the desks since some still use benches to sit and write on.
  5. Lack of school uniforms by most of the children.
  6. Lack of money to pay the teachers and the non staff members. Lack of a lap top to ease the reporting.

COMMENTS

  1. For quality performance/teaching  in the centre, the following should be met :urgent one being a plot to construct a spacious building/ rooms to accommodate more than 500 children, feeding program, provision of teaching and learning materials,  quality supervision, quality management, giving of a token to the teachers and the non-staff members, buying of food and the stationary,buying of the furniture e. g desks, tables, chairs etc and  buying of rental units will help boost the teaching and learning and also make it easier for the performance to be at the top and also make it  more  easier for the feeding of the 300 children or more thus having a feeding centre for the children and also having a quality orphanage to all. In this way, the Brainstorm Junior School and the Day-Care Centre will have the opportunity to accommodate more children  and make them learn with an ease since they are vulnerable and most of them are very bright and can be  the future leaders of this country or Africa at large.

May I George Jarona, take this opportunity to thank our dear friends Anthony, Nicolas and Claudia and all the friends who contributed towards helping Brainstorm children and have brought  a  big smile on  the faces of  these young and innocent children who I always say, they are the future leaders of the world.

Thank you all.

Be blessed.
