Our teachers continue to teach English on a volunteer basis and we hope to provide our students with certificates of completion this month. Although we do not have the means to pay them at this time, our member contributions allow us to purchase soap which we give them to thank them for their work.
Madarasa ya Kiingereza
Walimu wetu wanaendelea kufundisha Kiingereza kwa kujitolea na tunatarajia kuwapa wanafunzi wetu vyeti vya kumaliza mwezi huu. Ingawa hatuna uwezo wa kuwalipa kwa wakati huu, michango yetu ya wanachama inaturuhusu kununua sabuni ambayo tunawapa kuwashukuru kwa kazi yao.
Our first film, Never Give Up, is in post-production now and we hope to make it available for viewing soon. In the meantime, our group has been preparing its second project. We expect to begin shooting this month.
Uzalishaji wa Filamu
Filamu yetu ya kwanza, Never Give Up, iko katika utayarishaji wa baada ya muda sasa na tunatumai kuifanya ipatikane ili kutazamwa hivi karibuni. Wakati huo huo, kikundi chetu kimekuwa kikitayarisha mradi wake wa pili. Tunatarajia kuanza kupiga picha mwezi huu.
Upon returning from the syntropic agroforestry course, Kadjosi Matabishi trained 25 people, ten of which started planting. Four of our students succeeded, but a lack of seeds resulted in failure for the others. We hope to be in a position to train at least 25 more gardeners within the next few weeks.
Everyone is still very interested in pursuing their efforts to grow food. If you would like to make this possible for them, please contribute through our donations page. Our goal at this time is $200 to $300 US. We thank you in anticipation for your generosity.
Here are a few photos from the gardens.
Aliporejea kutoka kozi ya kilimo mseto, Kadjosi Matabishi alitoa mafunzo kwa watu 25, kumi kati yao walianza kupanda. Wanafunzi wetu wanne walifaulu, lakini ukosefu wa mbegu ulisababisha wengine kushindwa. Tunatumai kuwa katika nafasi ya kuwafunza angalau watunza bustani wengine 25 ndani ya wiki chache zijazo.
Kila mtu bado ana nia kubwa ya kutafuta juhudi zao za kupanda chakula. Ikiwa ungependa kuwawezesha hili, tafadhali changia kupitia ukurasa wetu wa michango. Lengo letu kwa wakati huu ni $200 hadi $300 za Marekani. Tunakushukuru kwa kutarajia ukarimu wako.
Hapa kuna picha chache kutoka kwa bustani.
For some time, the women of DES have been meeting members of the community to promote peace between the people of the many countries and tribes now living in the Kakuma Camp. Through contributions from the membership, our group purchases refreshments to motivate attendance. This activity takes place every two weeks.
Kwa muda, wanawake wa DES wamekuwa wakikutana na wanajamii ili kuendeleza amani kati ya watu wa nchi nyingi na makabila yanayoishi katika Kambi ya Kakuma. Kupitia michango kutoka kwa wanachama, kikundi chetu hununua viburudisho ili kuhamasisha kuhudhuria. Shughuli hii hufanyika kila baada ya wiki mbili.
Printing and Photocopying Services
We continue to provide printing and photocopying services to our community and are happy to report that this activity has become self-supporting in that we use the proceeds to replenish our supplies of paper and ink.
Huduma za Uchapishaji na Kupiga Picha
Tunaendelea kutoa huduma za uchapishaji na fotokopi kwa jumuiya yetu na tuna furaha kuripoti kwamba shughuli hii imekuwa ya kujitegemea kwa kuwa tunatumia mapato kujaza karatasi na wino wetu.
