The Importance Of A Wind Up Radio

Nasio’s Christmas 2020 appeal was a great success and many families benefitted from our Christmas boxes which contained a wind-up radio along with a food parcel and an item of clothing for a child.

The wind-up radio was included as a direct response to the Covid-19 situation, providing a way of ensuring that important information reaches our poor, vulnerable communities.

Improvements in general hygiene: a positive side to Covid-19?

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, to help combat the spread of the virus, The Nasio Trust has focused on making handwashing more accessible to over 45,000 people living in the Mumias West area in rural Kenya.

The Nasio Trust have worked with the Kenyan Ministry of Health to set up over 150 handwashing ‘Tippy Tap’ stations, a hands-free way to wash your hands. They have also donated 150 hand washing containers to regional farmers and a further 250 hand washing containers to families and flood centres.

Schools are closed in Kenya for the rest of 2020!

The risks of keeping schools closed far outweigh the benefits especially for our children and their families from poor communities.

Children out of school are more likely to suffer abuse, early teenage pregnancies, malnutrition and poor mental health. Many girls will be married off or urged to give up their studies and start work to support the family. With the school closure girls are most at risk.

International Teachers Supporting Kenyan Teaching Team During Lockdown

In different parts of the world right now, we are all learning to be a little more resilient with ourselves and especially with everyone around us.

Personally, I was looking forward to joining our Nasio school teachers in Kenya in March to deliver our second Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) program, but due to Covid-19, it had to be postponed. Postponed till the day I got a message from Ian Mbati, our Nasio schools head teacher, humbly asking “how can we develop our teachers during the quarantine?” At that moment I realized that our ECDE program must not be postponed, instead it should be reinvented.

Areas of Mumias West devastated by flooding

As our supporters will know, the rural communities we support in western Kenya are being hit hard by COVID-19. We’re now sad to report that the river Nzoia in Mumias has burst its banks and is in flood.

With heavy rain now predicted for at least the next 7 days, there's no sign of improvement in the situation.
