We are sending $38 to each family every month through at least August 2020. This is enough for a family of 5 to eat one meal per day for a month, and also buy soap and some other basics.
100% OF ALL FUNDS RAISED WILL BE SENT TO FAMILIES OF OUR 231 STUDENTS.
Fortunately, Kenyans and KOCC use mobile money transfers called "M-Pesa," a safe and efficient alternative to cash.
The coronavirus crisis is being taken seriously in Kenya, with all schools shuttered, markets closed, and a curfew in effect. These important measures also mean the economy has ground to a halt and family guardians' meagre income from day-labor and micro-business has dried up. Homes are full of children, and many guardians are pleading with us that they have no money for food or hygiene items like soap. The transfers we've sent so far in April, May, and June have been immensely appreciated. Please help us continue offering relief during this very challenging time.
