Bryce Homes Kenya Update
March 201
9

 

This month, March 2019, Bryce Homes Kenya had an opportunity to develop a report card to assess the outcome of the activities done so far:

1. Number of the Bryce Homes;
As at now, counting eight years down the line, the program sustains 37 Bryce Homes out of which 33 regularly receive support in form of foodstuff every month. The remaining four are now tracing their paths towards self-sustainability following the establishment of Small Business Opportunities under their custody.

2. Building of Shelters for the Bryce Homes
Out of the 37 Bryce Homes, 17 now have good houses to live in. Initially, majority of these homes had temporary shelters mainly made of mud and grass. These posed health risks especially during cold weather. They were not safe either as some would even be penetrated by wild animals. A case was heard when a venomous snake found its way into a house and stayed in the crevices on the wall without trace. Such cases made these dilapidated houses unsafe for human life. Today, courtesy of this Program (Bryce Homes), hundreds of children are now well accommodated and are no longer at risk.

3. Equipping of the Bryce Homes;
Bryce Homes Program did not just build shelters but also equipped them with bedding, wood stoves, and medium sized solar to provide them with light. The light helped their children study while at home while the wood stoves have greatly reduced health risks related to smoke.

4. Hygiene;
Fortunate are the homes that were provided with permanent pit latrines with bathrooms. Such homes were initially at risk of contracting waterborne diseases such as cholera and typhoid.

Even though just a few were lucky to benefit from the arrangements to have pit latrines, the outcome is immense. We look forward to reaching out to more of the homes with pit latrines.

5. Water Reservoirs and water filters;
Before the intervention of the Bryce Homes Program, thee widows used to walk longer distances to access rivers for water which they use for domestic purposes. In their exhausted statuses, these weary women could not live longer as they subjected their lives in to danger. Today is a new dawn in their lives as they harvest water from their roof tops and filter for domestic use.

6. Small Business Opportunities;

In order to assist the widows to become self-sustainable, the Program introduced Small Business Opportunities through which some of the widows practice poultry keeping; others do small scale businesses while some are interested in gardening. Late last year, a group of four widows namely; Josephine (BH 2), Elida (BH 35), Irene (BH 19) and Maren (BH 42) were considered for the SBO Program. We have noted some progress in their projects and we are optimistic for their stable future.

Gaudencia was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 cervical cancer. Her health deteriorates each day hence the need to take care of the children.

Bryce Homes located in a semi-arid area.

fellow widow in the program)
How she lived in
problems in this old shelter before Bryce Homes
Program reached her.

has brought  comfort in her life.

 


Phoebe toured a latrine where Agnes further reiterated how hygienic
it is to have a toilet and a bathroom in a home.
