Weekly Report – Sept 30 – Oct 5

This week was very hectic for institutions like Hands of Love that are registered as informal schools. A directive by the Ministry of Education to close down all schools that have not complied with safety guidelines meant that we were on the spotlight. This following a tragedy in which eight children died after their school building collapsed.

Hands of Love exceeds the minimum requirements form informal schools. but we face a safety concern emanating from the coffee factory on the ground floor of our building which poses a serious fire hazard. We got a visit by an inspection team led by the area chief which was impressed by the infrastructure we have in place and gave us more time to address the fire risk. There are many ways in which this visit could have gone wrong. But we are grateful to the chief for his intervention and for appreciating the work that we are doing in Kariobangi.
