Report on Ark Quest Education Centre
Kenya has reported over 13,000 Covid19 cases and 234 deaths. At the village, the closest case is about 40km away in Kisumu.
The village community is suffering from some of the challenges brought by the pandemic. Quite a number of people have lost their jobs and it is difficult for many families to provide basic food for their children. Ark Quest Education Centre is currently supporting some children with breakfast and lunch. Providing teachers’ salaries continues to be our top priority at the moment. Calvine, and the staff are particularly appreciative of the ongoing support from you, our supporters, at this difficult time.
Despite these difficult times, we are happy to report that the dairy herd is flourishing. Six healthy calves have recently been born and will join the milking herd in the future.
We are excited to report that we are in the process of partnering with International Needs to provide sponsorship for more children. The advantages of this are increased publicity, a much wider sponsorship base and also tax benefits for those who choose to sponsor through International Needs rather than through Ark Quest Trust. It is still early days, and there will be more information coming to you soon.
