We are very grateful for our manager's care of the children by teaching them to wash often and not to use the usual greeting of a handshake. The children have had fun designing another type of greeting, a kind of knee knock. Staff have agreed to stay on sight and for those who do go home, a 14 day quarantine welcomes them back.
The Kenyan government has allowed the children in Grades 4, 8, and 12 to return to school, as of mid-October, 2020.
Back at the Centre, the rest of the Mercy and Caring Home children who are not yet allowed back to public school attend daily classes are studying with 3 "big sisters". These young women are Grade 12 graduates, plus one ECD teacher.
As of May 2021, Kenya plans to open schools again in June. Our ECD classes will continue to run on site and we will also offer Standard 2 and 3 (grades 2 and 3) to give our children a better foundation with more one to one attention.
The much needed rains for this planting season have come, and maize and vegetables will soon be growing (May 2021). Our fishponds did not succeed over several years. They have now been drained and vegetables planted instead.
