Christmas is back again. A time for family, family meetings, big meals and smiles. The long awaited holiday. The celebration of the birth of Jesus from Nazareth. Moreover, a time for generosity.

It is also the end of the year and we want to share our insights with you.

This year has been a tough one for everyone and we were not different. But in SJDP we are proud to say that we have accomplished our mission despite all the challenges; school interruptions due to the pandemic, families who suddenly lost their sources of income, and Covid19 cases all around. However, we did our best and managed to solve things out so all our beneficiaries could enjoy our programmes as usual. We succeeded.

To be more specific we want to tell you about numbers. Our Upendo 190 students (from the Unit, Primary School and Technical Secondary School) have been able to continue their studies. It is true that some future fees are not yet covered though. Our Technical Secondary school has been able to teach and support their 224 students to get closer to their goals: passing the state exams. Moreover, in Uzima, the women empowerment program has benefited 225 women either HIV positive or gender-based violence victims. Another 106 have received psychosocial support and counselling.

Therefore, we are happy and satisfied with the results of this year. We deeply thank our donors, partners and all those who contributed to make us succeed. You are the ones who make this possible.

Nevertheless, we are not conformists, we want to continue growing, reaching more people, providing better services, and having better installations for our students and beneficiaries.

To make that possible we still need your support. Once more, we can only make it with help from people like you. Here you can see some of the needs we are facing in the coming year, 2022:

- Upendo third term Primary fees for 119 students: Price per student 58, 35€ / Ksh7450 / 65,84USD

- Computers 30 units: price per unit is 195.30€ / Ksh25, 000 / 220.42USD

- Reading chairs 50 units: Prince per unit is 31€ / Ksh4, 000 / 34.99USD

- Library tables 5 units: Price per unit is 117€ / Ksh15, 000/ 132.05USD

- Electrical class teaching aids: 3125€ / Ksh400, 000 / 3526.88USD

- Science Laboratory Reagent: 4296.88€ / Ksh550, 000 / 4849.46USD

By supporting us, you are providing real opportunities for those who never had one. You can make a change.

TOGETHER WE CAN BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY IN KANGEMI!
