KIMUKA SAMURIA INITIATIVE
ORPHANAGE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Kimuka Samuria Initiative is an affiliate of Jambo volunteers whose main focus is on orphans and vulnerable children. Among our objectives towards having close watch on the orphans and vulnerable children, was to build a standard orphanage to house and avail them to our services. We have gone a little better step now with the construction at the roof level though windows and doors have not yet been fixed (windows and doors have been paid for) and other parts such as plastering, floors, keying and all furniture (tables, beds etc. ) cooking equipment, ceiling and electrification remain a big mountain for us due to financial challenge. The construction started in February 2013 and was to be finished by mid-April but has not due to problems we have had with contractor whom we came to realize that he signs for many contracts at the same time
It’s expected that the proposed project will go a long way in assisting orphans- both boys and girls. We anticipate to be recruiting at least 60 boys and girls annually after the completion of the ongoing orphanage construction.
RESOURCES CURRENTLY ON SITE
The Kimuka Samuria Initiative already have reliable water piped from the nearby community church well, uncompleted orphanage and a modern pre school with a capacity of over 30 pupils, two trained teachers and two support staff.
The project came to a standstill after almost completion due to shortage of funds; the project reached the final part which was roofing. Wall plastering and fixing doors, windows, and bathroom and kitchen amenities are yet pending. Currently the project contractor who was given the tender for the supply of the windows doors and fixing them is in his final part for completion.
A large percentage of funds the organization received came from Carlson Foundation, however we still got funds from various other organization e.g A.I.F, and the Spanish Speaking Association, We received 10,000 euros that translates to 820,000ks for the roofing and doors and window fixing and below is a summary for the expenditure.

ROOF ALREADY DONE.
Currently the project construction is not going on as caused by the delayed request for windows and doors which was even paid but the contractor did not implement, however the committee is following on this issue to ensure the items are brought with immediate effect in the correct number and quality.
More funds are needed for the completion of identified plastering, electrical installation, painting and furnishing parts. Though the remaining part is just a little percentage as compared to the work already done, we require much financial help so as to finish this project and see to it running.
