    Beatrice Fullal Foundation Fundraiser

    The children in Samburu, Isiolo and Marsabit counties struggle to have access to basic needs like education and health and with the current Covid 19 pandemic, the schools are currently undergoing a phasic re-opening and most of the children from the vulnerable homes in the northern of Kenya access most of the basic needs by virtue of them going to school. When schools closed most of the children were forced to go back into their villages which meant access to the basic needs were extremely limited due to the distances to accessing their villages. We have also seen a rise to early teen pregnancies as in certain communities in the north marry off their children because they cannot bear the burden of basic needs, a rise in early childhood marriages and a rise in gender-based violence that put the children at very high risk.  <br/><br/> We also saw the rise and adaptation of digital learning to ensure that children do not stop their various curriculums. This was positively embraced all over however children in these arid areas do not have internet or even electricity let alone the ability to afford laptops to perform the digital learning processes.  <br/><br/> With this need, we have currently completed the first phase of our flagship project that will saw us going physically to the villages and actively engage with the communities to formulate solutions that will be long lasting and strategically designed for their specific needs and their environments. We successfully distributed sanitary towels to 1,162 girls and distributed solar kits to 460 homes across the 3 counties of Isiolo, Samburu and Marsabit <br/><br/> My name is Ellein Nasieku, I was born and raised in a town in northern Kenya called Maralal in Samburu County. I was extremely fortunate to have gotten access to basic needs including education and health which helped me advance my education to campus level and further moving to Nairobi the capital of Kenya to pursue employment in the IT field. <br/><br/>  It has been a very longing need to go back to my community and use all my experience to help the very same community that nurtured me. With this passion and seeing first hand through my personal life and my family, the positive effects of education and access to basic needs; I decided that it is now time to go back to my community and give back my time, my resources and my vast IT experience to help advance the livelihoods of the children and vulnerable homes in my county.  Phase 2 will see us provide the below mentioned to these vulnerable homes with a target of 1000 homes. <br/><br/>  Solar kits <br/><br/> Menstrual kits <br/><br/> Mentorship sessions <br/><br/> The solar kits will have radios embedded on them that will help them access educational programmes currently being aired over local radio stations and this will enable the children to come up to speed with the lost education time.  <br/><br/> The menstrual kits will be distributed among the targeted homes with a goal of providing enough pads and underwear’s to last them at least a full year. We will also provide menstrual health and menstrual hygiene sessions to the girls.  The Mentorship sessions will be specifically targeted to encourage the children and the youth to take up different forms of alternative learning that is formulated for their specific villages to help them advance their livelihoods. The sessions will include education, farming, and health programs.  <br/><br/> I kindly request your support by donating to this goal. Your donation will go a long way in ensuring that we achieve the goals that we have set out to do.  <br/><br/> For more information, please reach Nasieku Ellein 0725822738

    " We successfully completed the first phase of our project that aimed at distributing sanitary kits, solar lanterns and conduct educational mentorship programs to the vulnerable select children and homes from Isiolo, Samburu and Marsabit counties. <br/><br/> We visited schools in Isiolo, Archers post in Samburu, marsabit town, hula hula, Karare and Maikona in Marsabit county where we met girls and families from vulnerable homes, we sat down with the girls and had a heart to heart conversation on menstruation and menstruation hygiene. We spoke about the importance of normalizing menstruation conversations in a bid to end the stigma associated with periods. <br/><br/> We also sat down with select community <br/><br/> members and spoke to them on the importance of having conversations about FGM and ensuring children are taken to school in our bid to ensure that all children are protected and have access to quality education. Our goal especially in distributing the solar lanterns with radios embedded in them is to ensure that these children from pastoral communities are still able to access education via programmes aired on local radio stations since a huge number of them dont have access to phones, tablets or laptops.
