Bryce Homes Kenya Update
July 2016
 

 

THE SURVEY REPORT

OF

BRYCE HOME PROJECT

KENYA

 BY

THE KENYA GOVERNMENT OFFICERS

 FROM

THE MINISTRY OF GENDER AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT

DATE: 1ST JULY 2016.

 

While the Bryce Home support project have been making progress in Kenya, it came to our attention that the local government at the grass roots had been following keenly. This made them invite the board to their office where many questions were asked. We explained the objectives of the project and the kind of activities we have conducted so far.

The office therefore sent a representative (officer) to one of the homes which has been receiving support. Due to cost implications, we identified the home of Francisca which was in the neighborhood. The board members accompanied the officer to the home of Francisca where inspection was done and a report done on the same.

General Inspection of the Home;

The following findings were made;

                    I.Three roomed permanent house found.

                   II. A well maintained permanent pit latrine and a bathroom.

                  III. A well maintained dish rack.

                 IV  A small kitchen garden

 

1.   Interview :

Through an interview, the officer established the following findings;

a.      Francisca is a young widow in the age bracket of 25-30 years

b.      She is a mother of four children of primary school going age

c.       She regularly receives support in terms of food stuff, soap and medication. This is done on a monthly basis.

d.      She received a starting capital for SBO worth 75 US dollars from the programme.

 

2.      Observation

Francisca is an organized mother in the house as depicted in her sitting room, bedroom and kitchen. She observes high level hygiene. She however had some weaknesses such as, poor recording in her SBO business and poor garden maintenance.

 

3.   General remarks

The project was found to be generally good and encouraged to continue.

The Bryce home board was commended for the effort done to ensure the living standards of the widows improved.

Young widows like Francisca require serious engagement in SBO business to prevent them from idling.

 

1.      Recommendations

                                I Proper management and follow up of the SBO to ensure the widows make progress towards self-sustainability.

                               II.Their gardens must be supervised fortnightly to teach them responsibility.

                              III.Seminars and workshops to be held for the widows quarterly a year to impact business ethics in them.

                            IV. Each widow to be supported in a range of 1-2 years then left to proceed with a self-sustaining activity. This should be done for the case of widows who are below 60 years. The older widows (above 60 years of age) who may not be able to work to earn a living may be supported with food stuff unconditionally.

                            V.Widows who record good results in the SBO’s should have their business expanded and employ others.

                           VI.The government officers from the Ministry of Gender and Social Department to accompany the Bryce Home board and visit all the widows receiving the support. This will enable them write a comprehensive report that can open more doors to help the widows live a self-sustaining life.
