The year 2010 was a tough year for us as even we approached the end of the year.
More so we managed to make a difference in the lives of many children in our centers and many families in the community. We supported children through child protection activities, education, primary health care, and lobbying for their support in general. Through adoption the process of adoption, a total of 27 children joined new families,127 children also went back to the community through family re- unions. Many small babies were abandoned and there is a day that five babies were brought from different police stations after being abandoned by unknown parents. In total we rescued 31 new children into our program. Their age ranged from a day old to 3 years. This is a clear indication of the much work that is still unaccomplished in the community.
Last year 2010 we did a road show campaign awareness creation in our communities on children abandonment. We also had families’ empowerment programs in which we strengthened affected family units to be in a position to provide to their families as opposed to having them join the streets if not orphanages. Many projects were initiated like introduction of fish farming in Imani B and Imani Malindi respectively. There was also commissioning of Imani B kitchen, cabros project in Imani B and bio gas project in Imani B
On a different note we had sad moment in February Uncle Tom passed away. To the children he was a father, founder, uncle, guide and counselor. It was after a short illness and we are feeling the gap he left. Uncle Tom will be remembered for the incredible service to the children, we laid him to rest in peace on 28th Feb 2010. He was a family man with a son and a daughter and we felt we should extend our responsibility. We thank God for the many years he served the children. I am forwarding this important document to you – an annual report indicating what we did through you and others in 2010. We are really appreciating all our donors, Partners, well wishers and all our stakeholders at all the different levels for all the support they accorded us throughout the year 2010 and for all the areas that we were able to network. For sure were it not for your various inputs we could not have made it this far. We are also looking forward for your continued cooperation and support as we strive to ‘contribute into a society in which all children will lead a dignified existence with equal and just access to opportunities in life’. Wishing you a blessed new year 2011.
