Donation and report from the school in KIBERA





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.

2nd donation arrived at Kibera

The second donation effort that took place during Christmas brought some more smiles to the little angels of our beloved school.  We are under difficult times in Greece but the truth of the matter is that these kids (like so many others) live in beyond poverty level. Some close fiends help us and we sent a small donation to the school right before New Years. A week ago I was happy to receive an email from George Jarona with the stuff they bought together with some photos. Meet  Phabian Ouma, Fidel Otieno, Sean Chuchu and Sarah Akoth.
