CTAP Stories in Kenya

“Covid-19 came with a lot of effects especially in the education sector. As teachers we were forced to close schools for 9 months and indeed we weren’t receiving any donation for upkeep. The only donation I received is from a certain organisation and it’s just because i'm a youth leader. My plea to the government is that they use good and reliable people on the ground to offer these donations or even Nyumba Kumi.” AMOS AMBETHA

Teacher at the centre of Wisdom Academy and a resident in Mukuru Kwa Njenga
“I used to be a business man but since the pandemic hit the country my business deteriorated and not only me, Also other fellow citizens. The only government donations have ever heard is through our chief and also other organisations but unfortunately I have never received any. My request to the government is to stretch a hand of help where possible so as those people who got affected and are at their homes through business shutdown or through sickness can at least get a new come back.”
Patrick Mailu
Mukuru kwa Njenga
“This corona has made us what I can’t even comprehend, Our kids are always out of school just because of money constraints. I used to wash clothes for people but since corona appeared my clients rejected me due to corona fears. About government donations I have never received anything nor hear till date. I don’t know where to follow these donations since I don’t know any channel . In addition where we stay their are a lot of mosquitoes” and hence we are getting affected just because we can’t afford even a mere mosquito net.
Edina Bonareri
Mukuru kwa Njenga
“Before corona I used to do my business and sometimes do homework . But now since corona hit us everything stopped, Even paying school fees is a task. This government donations have ever heard about them but as people from informal settlements areas especially me, I have not benefited from anything. And again the donations are given through good relationship channels or either family to family for example people from Milimani can benefit while people from 48 area are left out.”
