Teacher Damaris is from House of Prayer Community School in Mukuru Kwa Ruben where most of our community impact participants live. She is in charge of physical education in the school; “teacher Dama” as most of the pupils call her, is also the secretary of Green-Kenya committee team that is responsible for Child Protection in Mukuru.
“Teacher Dama” has been taking part in community impact program weekly; helping with marking the attendance book after the sessions and ensuring that participants return to school after the session as per the requirement.
Just before the schools were closed as a result of Covid-19, “Teacher Dama” was 3 months pregnant, teaching was her sole source of income. During the food donation that Green-Kenya conducted, “Teacher Dama” was among those who benefited from the donation. She is now in need of prenatal and antenatal healthcare to prevent low birth weight and other complications. This is one of the stories that our participants are experiencing.
However, we can make a difference in the lives of the teachers who are now struggling, with few options to provide for their families and children by donating on Bonus Day. The Bonus Day which will take place on 15th of July from 09:00:00 a.m. ET to 23:59:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
The July Bonus Day is a day to celebrate and encourage large donations, only donations of $100 USD or more will be matched on Bonus Day and, the higher the donation, the higher the match! From $100 and up to $1,000 will be matched this July 15th. https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/community-impact-program/
