Breaburn Mombasa

Children helping Children

On Friday 21st of November 2014, Braeburn held another Non-Uniform Day in favour of ACTS.

The students pay a minimum of 100 Ksh for the privilege of being allowed to come to school in home clothes. This way they raised 19,150 Ksh, which will be used for the Porridge Programme.

A big thank you to Braeburn for their continued support!

Porridge Programme feeding over 600 children!

ACTS Porridge Programme


ACTS Porridge Programme 2

Lunch and Porridge are provided to students in four schools.

Over 600 kindergarden and special needs students take porridge and we also offer lunch to some students (special cases) in one of our schools who cannot afford one meal in their homes hence making it very difficult to concentrate in class.

Many thanks go to Dr. Gita Shah, Dr. Chamia of Jocham Hospital, Mariam of the Mombasa Redcross and Dr. Aabid Ahmed of Bomu Hospital who came to our aid when we desperately needed medical attention for two of our students. Your free consultation and admission to hospital were greatly appreciated by ACTS staff.

Thanks go to Anjna Sabharwal and Razea Datoo for their help and generous donations to the overall cost of drugs etc.

The girls are back to school and in good health!

Thank You to the Medical Programme Supporters!

ACTS Scholars Day:

ACTS Scholars Day

David Oyoo (left) sponsored by ACTS and currently offered admission in Chuka University to pursue a degree in Bachelor of Science (Agricultural Economics) was the speaker of the day. He gave a motivational talk to the students, urging them not to look where they come from and the challenges they face, but to focus ahead and at the end of the tunnel they will find the light that will put a smile on their faces.

This time it happened in the ACTS office! Parents were called in groups and on different dates. Gloria had time to discuss the performance of each student with their parents. Parents were cautioned that a child’s performance depends on the parents contribution towards the child’s education! She insisted that while ACTS does their side, parents should do their part and students their part too. We came to an agreement and they all left very happy parents.

ACTS Golf Day at Vipingo Ridge - 700,000 Kshs raised!

The ACTS Golf Day was held on the 12th of December 2014 at Vipingo Ridge. The competition was Stableford and attracted a field of 60 players. It was a very successful day and thanks to our wonderful group of sponsors, we managed to raise Kshs 700,000.

Vipingo Ridge hosted the day beautifully and we had a running lunch for players to enjoy whether they had teed off in the morning or the afternoon. Light snacks were then served later in the afternoon and in to the evening when we held the prize giving. The competition was won by Matt Thonger with a score of 43 points. Mumta Patel was the runner up and the third prize was won by Ismail Gulamali.

A very big thank you to Vipingo Ridge for allowing us to use their superb course and we very much hope to hold the event again this year!

ACTS aims for 2015:

  • Sourcing more sponsors to enable us enroll as many needy form one students as possible, who performed very well in their KCPE but are unable to join secondary school due to poverty.
  • Finding funds to help more third level students as we have many waiting to join colleges. NB: ACTS website is almost done and we are sourcing for a sponsor to support us maintain it.

Thank You!

ACTS would like to thank all the Donors; Sponsors; Corporate businesses and the Volunteers who make it possible to provide education for the needy in our target area Kongowea Mombasa Kenya.

The beneficiaries of the charity; ACTS Scholars will be forever indebted to all of you who have made it possible for them to defy poverty through education! The lunch and porridge programmes motivate the children and give them a reason to wake up and go to school each day!
