Statement: Young mothers Kenya works directly with isolated vulnerable school dropout girls who are below 18 years, and are faced with rejection from either the family or the guardian and are expectant at the same time having challenges and not sure with what to do with their life. YMK comes in as a bridge for the Young Mothers to be able to build their life and nature their pregnancy by providing for their basic needs, love and comfort, and to be able to have a child - mother bonding..

    And with the requirements of basic needs water was a big challenge to the entire family of

    Young Mothers Kenya, since the capacity of the girls and their babies was growing day by day,

    however; the Organization water tank for water storage was not adequate, this was exposing

    both the babies and mothers at risk of being infected by different diseases more so during the

    Kenyan normal power blackout forcing the mothers not to do their laundry as required or clean

    their units(house) and sanitation as far as cleanliness is concerned. Mothers were being forced

    to draw water from outside making them to miss their normal learning lesson within the

    institution or sometimes to draw water when it’s dark.

    However; after the kind donation of 500,000 ksh which was presented to Young mothers Kenya

    by friends of Young Mothers (Swedish Families) in regards to proper and adequate water

    storage, the management moved with speed and identified an area where the pillars were to be

    erected, and the construction of the tower to begin since the initial place where the Organization

    has a small tank couldn’t fit the bigger tank, the organization was also incurring huge power

    bills at the end of the Month due to frequent water pumping from the well to the small tank which

    was being consumed simultaneously within the compound, but in the end the compound now

    have adequate water throughout 24 hours weather there is power blackout or not, and this was

    made possible through willingness and cooperation which we got from the mentioned above,

    which was then channeled to ymk account through the help of our sister Victoria Bengtsson.

    Apart from the water tank installation the Management also managed to bring a new face of the

    institution by painting all the places and building the perimeter wall behind the units for

    the security purposes, since the initial fence which was there was only bush fence which was

    supported by woods, exposing the mothers and their babies to other risks such as bandits, or

    escaping through the fence, now the girls and the staff feel more secure within the compound.

    YMK also managed to paint inside its medical room. (Please see the photos below of the

    work in different stages.

    After re-evaluating ourselves, the aim was achieved within the shortest period possible, and this

    was realized due to the cooperation and the financial support that Young Mothers Kenya

    received from Sven-Ola Bengtsson and the entire team which was intended solely for the work

    as shown above, however this was after realizing how water shortage within the Compound was

    jeopardizing the lives of Young Mothers Kenya clients and their babies, and for sure it has been

    of great help to the entire family of YMK. We look forward to a more rewarding working

    relationship with our partners (friends of YMK) and we do want to appreciate their role and

    efforts of contributions to ensure that Young Mother’s Kenya clients are comfortable and happy

    as they continue with their healing therapy.

    All in all on behalf of the entire family of Young Mothers Kenya we say,

    Thank you so much.
