Description

The Coronavirus pandemic puts additional burden on the Government and people of Kenya. It is not just a public health issue, it is a development issue already affecting the entire socioeconomic spectrum of the country. This project will be implemented in Taita Taveta in Kenya . In Taita Taveta county, poverty reduction in the County remains a challenge as the County has an absolute poverty level of 57.2% and contributes 1.1%to national poverty. The County is not self-sufficient in food. Food poverty is close to 50%. Many parents face challenge of supporting their children with Covid 19 prevention materials hence the students are very vulnerable to Covid 19. It is for the reason we are seeking support to purchase reusable facemasks and sanitizers for the students.
The project activities will include the procurement of face masks and sanitizers. Once we have procured them we shall deliver them to schools across the county. The entire exercise will take one week and all the materials will be in school. We will work close with Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health team to ensure compliance.
