FCMI March 2021 Report

A year ago, we initiated the FAMILY CLOTH MASK INITIATIVE (FCMI) as part of our COVID-19 interventions. After realizing many families had to choose between masks and putting food on the table, we took the initiative to help ease their burden and in so doing asked you to help us help them.

We also participated in the GlobalGiving Challenge and reached out to many partners that we had worked with in the past. Individuals and organizations came together to support the initiative which benefited many families.  (https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/tujipangekablatupangwe-lets-organise/

 Our tailors who were picked from community groups we were already working with, vulnerable families from informal settlements, police wives and women whose businesses have been affected by the onset of COVID19, have been able to make a livelihood for themselves and even, get back on their feet. We continue to train different tailors, to help them get back on their feet.

In total, we trained over 24 tailors. June- December 2020: Over 5,000 Masks Distributed to the following areas, Kabiro- Kawangware area, Dreams LCVT-Kangemi, Childrens’ home Kibagare-Kangemi, National Police Service, Pokot County, Kakamega County, Kamukunji Constituency Schools and Community, Westlands Constituency primary schools. January -February 2021: 2,998 Masks Distributed to: Mathare Constituency Schools, Isiolo County Schools, and Siaya County Community. 18 Handwashing Stations and Soap Distributed to Schools within Kamukunji and Mathare constituencies

 As schools remain open and the third wave continues to ravage schools, we would like to continue to work with schools and community members to continue giving masks, Handwashing stations and IEC materials that remind the public to follow the WHO protocols set out to mitigate against the spread of covid-19.

We would like to thank everyone has supported us; everyone who donated fabric, everyone who sent in their donations via Mpesa/Mchanga, Reinvest, the Chandaria Foundation, NAPOWA, NPS, Youth Changers Kenya, GlobalGiving Challenge, International Justice Mission, The Jonaron Foundation, Hakuna Matata Youth Association, Copy Xpress and Chrome Partners and the Ministry of Health Kenya.
