COVID-19 Response in 2020

Build Africa Kenya (BAK), with its partner Street Child-UK (SCUK) managed to raise GBP 5,000 towards COVID-19 interventions in Bondeni Slums in Nakuru County during the onset of the pandemic. Bondeni has a population of over 500,000 people, mostly involved in informal small businesses.

During onset of Covid-19 Pandemic, children, especially girls, were worst hit by the consequences. Parents lost jobs and livelihoods, and some could not afford basic needs, including sanitary wear for girls which made them vulnerable to exploitative and sex predators.

BAK also repurposed a total of GBP 5,000 towards the response initiative. A total of GBP 10,000 enabled BAK and SCUK to respond to 150 Households in Bondeni slum Nakuru with provision of food packages lasting each of the families about a month. This benefitted approximately 750 persons in total.

Those targeted were persons who recently lost jobs and are breadwinners in their families, persons living with disability, elderly persons, unemployed single mothers, children living with grandparents, persons living with conditions such as HIV/AIDs and other life-threatening conditions.

They were identified through the Community Health Volunteers (CHVs), community leaders as well as local administration. 250 girls from Bondeni slum benefitted from sanitary towels which would last each girl 6 months. Menstrual Health and Hygiene training were also conducted for the girls. Moreover, a total of 150 pupils benefitted learning materials to enable them undertake home learning supported by their parents. Persons under threat of SGBV were identified and linked up with relevant protection agencies including government departments.
