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.
