1) Purchase land & build a proper maisha home
The maisha home was originally built as a private house for Beatrice’s mother “ Mama Maisha”. This house has since been converted to become the maisha home and houses 25 people including the children and the employees. However, with limited space and housing both boys and girls, some of whom are reaching the teenage stage, we feel it is imperative to build a proper children’s home purposely designed to accommodate the childrens’ needs. An example of this is that currently there is only one bathroom for 25 people. Thanks to several generous donations from various individuals we have been able to buy 1250 square metres of land which now belongs to maisha and so our plan is now to build a proper maisha home.Click here to donate towards the project to build a new maisha home2) Find general sponsors to cover extra expenses & provide further education for our teenagers.
Our 22 maisha children currently all have sponsors who are covering their basic needs. However funds are needed to deal with emergencies and to cover all the extra costs that constantly arise eg. medical costs, replacing school uniforms, repairs etc. Moreover, several of the older maisha children will soon complete their primary education. Our plan is to enable them to continue to study at secondary school. While the money that we receive from sponsors covers the childrens’ basic needs and the fees for primary education, secondary school fees are significantly higher. For those children that are less academic, we want to encourage them to learn a trade and will be looking to provide them with the necessary training in areas where they are gifted. We are urgently looking for general sponsors who would be willing to support maisha by paying CHF 50 per month to ensure that the home runs smoothly and enable the children to fulfil their potential in life.Click here to become a general sponsor of maisha by paying CHF 50 per month3) Find specialized volunteers to help with the above projects
