School re-opening 2020 (Post-Covid-19)

Hello everyone!

Greetings from CVC

In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic hit Kenya like most other countries across the globe. Consequently, the education sector as well as the country’s economy were adversely affected. This led to closure of all levels of learning institutions. The pandemic had an extremely adverse impact on the CVC community that comprise of students, the staff, and refugee families that in one way or the other depend on our organization’s support. The ministry of education proposed re-opening of schools in phases in light of the prevailing pandemic. As a result, schools resumed on 12th October 2020. However only grades four and eight learners resumed as per the ministry of education directives. Out of the eleven teachers teaching at CVC, only five were selected to teach grades four and eight students in accordance with the ministry of education requirements on teachers qualified to teach in the two classes. The organization is not in a position to have all the teachers teach in the two classes because of our current financial situation that has been compounded by the pandemic.

We are grateful to God and our partners who have walked with us and immensely supported us throughout the Covid-19 pandemic period. However, the organization still needs a lot of support, both financially, emotionally, and in prayers, because our parents are not able to meet the financial needs of students and teachers who are in session. The economic status of refugee families was adversely affected by the pandemic and this has made it extremely difficult for them to make financial contributions towards learning. Therefore, we are appealing to partners, well-wishers, and friends to support our students go through this season in any way they can.  

Any support offered will be highly appreciated.

Below are some pictures of classes 4 & 8 during lunch time.

CVC. Covid-19 Food Assistance

It’s a big thank you!
Christ’s Victory Centre in partnership has been making effort to ensure that its beneficiaries are cushioned against the impact of Covid-19 through provision of food items. This has been conducted in partnership with our U.S partners and the Pakanj team. Multiple distributions have been made and the last one was made on 22/05/2020. Through the initiative and the support received, our beneficiaries are able to survive through this pandemic. however, as a result of the large number of our target population in need, we have not been able to provide for all of them. We thereby appeal to well-wishers to partner with us in this noble course.
C.V.C appreciates all the well-wishers who have so far supported us and we hope to continue partnering.
THANK YOU!!!

Appreciation

Christ’s Victory Center is a school run by a community based organization that provides education to vulnerable and needy children in the community. God has been good to us and this year; one of our students was able to join a national school (Chavakali Boys High School) through a scholarship offered by Fountain Initiative. We also appreciate the teaching staff, management and the entire CVC community for the achievement. CVC is grateful for the support and we hope for continued partnership- CVC-Chairman (Didier Kabandilwa)

I am taking this opportunity to thank all of you who have been praying for us (CVC). The 2019 K.C.P.E results has been out and, one of our pupil scored 399 marks and he has been selected to a national School – CHAVAKALI HIGH SCHOOL.

We have also raised the money for the new books for grade 4 and we are now closing this fundraising page for books 2020. Thanks to all our friends and families. i wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous happy new year 2020.

We need to raise US$650 to buy new text books. Can you help?

The Kenyan government is changing the primary school curriculum so we need to buy new text books for grade 4 students before the beginning of the new school year on 6 January 2020. We have already received a donation to buy some English books and the total cost of the remaining books that we need is 65182 Kenyan Shillings (around US$650). We would be very grateful to anyone who is able to help us by making a donation and sharing this appeal with family and friends. The easiest way to donate is through our M-Changa fundraising page at https://secure.changa.co.ke/myweb/share/8348. Please contact us if you would prefer to send money in a different way or would like more information.

Thank you in advance for your support!

The full list of books we need to buy is shown below.
