Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in Weekly Update | 0 comments

 

IMG_4732Kylie has been volunteering with us at LPK for four weeks now and her work at the daycare centre has been phenomenal.  Taking charge of the eldest children, Kylie has been a huge help in their language development and maths skills. Arriving early every day and not leaving till late, Kylie is one of the hardest working interns we have had. The children adore her and her enthusiasm is infectious! We look forward to the remaining three weeks she has with us here at LPK, and we are so grateful for all of the work that she has done and continues to do. Here are some snaps of Kylie in action!IMG_4759 IMG_4741

Today was the last day of WEEP class before the holiday break, and we celebrated with a Christmas party! We shared a big meal of rice, potatoes, and chapati. Then we distributed a food package to every family consisting of flour, maize meal, rice, sugar, and water purifier.

The children and their teachers with the ladies from the current WEEP program. Thanks guys!

Today was a very happy day at the Living Positive Kenya Center. We were visited by students from Aga Khan Primary School. Not only was it fun to see the children’s smiling faces, but they also brought a busload of donations for the center! In all there were over 50 boxes filled with toys, clothing, and food. These goods will be distributed among impoverished families in the community to give 80 families a Merry Christmas!

We would also like to wish Kenya a happy 50th birthday from all of us here at LPK!

A Typical Friday

Posted by on Dec 6, 2013 in Weekly Update | 1 comment

Fridays are busy days around here at LPK. Today was the first Friday of the month, so the woman in the current WEEP class divided and distributed food for the upcoming month. The foods for this month included maize flour, beans, and cooking oil.

In the afternoon we held our weekly support group. All women in the programs (HIV intervention and current and past WEEP students) attend. This is one of the most important aspects of the program we run here for several reasons. First, it is a place where the women can come together to give each other encouragement and support in both good times and bad. Second, students in the lower levels of the program can see how well the women of the graduated classes are doing, which offers inspiration to continue their own studies. Finally, the group participates in a class. Every month, the class focuses on one subject, such as nutrition or communicable diseases. Today, our Australian intern Jane taught a course on cervical cancer and safe sex.

As always, thank you for your continued support!
