Our ProgramsCasaupendo CBO runs a number of sub programs to support orphans as well as their grannies. Below we show the highlights of the programs we run. Some programs are still in the development stage and we need your help to be able to launch these programs.
We provide free counseling to the children in our program as well as their grannies. Counseling is done at our center on a need to need basis. In some cases, a group counseling session is conducted by our resident psychologist. All our children need counseling given their loss and grief background. Some children have HIV/AIDs passed to them by parents through birth hence require counseling and close monitoring.We need more volunteers to help us with the counseling program. Volunteers in this program must have a previous counseling experience either as a social worker, counselor, psychologists, or related experience. Please feel free to support this program.
Health Care Program
We monitor the health of all orphans in our program. We ensure that all children in our program get all types of vacciness needed for healthy development. Our visiting nurse observe each child on a regular basis to ensure that our children are doing well. Volunteers in this program, check the blood pressure, weight, height, of the children and make constant observations on our children. Chilren with minor health conditions are provided care by our volunteering nurse or visiting nurse. Severe cases are referred to doctors in the nearby hospital. We depend on volunteering nurses to run this program. We need more volunteering nurses to join this program and help create impact. We also have a great need of creating a first aid room filled with necessary medication, reagents and equipment that will enable visiting nurse to care for our children. You can support this program by sending a gift towards purchase of medication, equipments, and reagents needed in our first aid unit. You can also ship equipments to our orphanage and these will be a greate boost to the lives of our children as well as that of the community we are serving. Thank you for supporting Casaupendo Orphanage.
Goat Farming Program
Casaupendo Orphanage Strives towards being a sustainable orphanage that will survive the test of time. One of the projects that the orphanage is doing to work towards sustainability is goat farming. We received a donation of two female goats and one male goats. Today we are having 5 goats since one of our female goats gave birth to twins. The children can now enjoy fresh goat milk each day from our goat. This project needs more help because the goats need goat feed and need a regular vetenary officer to visit by every other month to provide the necessary care that our goats needs. Please feel free to send a gift towards goat feed to allow this project to continue running and helping our children.
Chicken Farming Program
Chicken farming is another project that Casaupendo Orphanage is doing in efforts to try and be a sustainable orphanage. We have 21 chickens in our home that provide eggs for our children. We are currently having a huge need here because if we had an egg incubator then we would breed some of the eggs and start taking care of baby chickens. You can support this project by sending a gift towards purchase of an egg incubator, or send a gift towards chicken feed. Each day the chickens need health food to supplement their diety and enable them to be healthy. The chicken need vaccines and medication to keep them healthy. We appreciate the help that you are giving our children and our orphanage.
Fish Farming Program
In 2020, the country was faced by covid pandemic and our children were home from school because of the pandemic. The children worked on fish ponds by implementing some of the skils they had learned in school. We received a donation from one of our supporters towards purchase of baby fish. Today the five fish ponds have baby fish. Each day the children and volunteers of casaupendo orphanage take turns in caring for the fish. In 6 months the children will have fish for food. The project is another step towards making casaupendo orphanage a sustainable orphanage. You can support fish farming by sending a gift directly towards fish food.
Orphanage Garden Program
Casaupendo orphanage has leased a 0.5 of an acre piece of property from our neighbors that has allowed fish farming and orphanage garden. The children are now home from school for easter holiday and have dug the soil ready to plant seeds. We are looking forwad to plant vegetables, carrots, tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, and more. Please support the garden program by sending a gift towards seedlings, insecticides, and manure. You can also send a gift towards purchase of the land that we are currently leasing since that will allow the orphanage to plant long term food crops like fruit trees, which will be of benefit to the children in the home. Thank you for all the support that you are giving casaupendo orphanage.
Casaupendo CBO encourage healthy living. As such, we use the available resources to encourage farmers to plant food crops. Some grannies in our program have small pieces of land. They can't do farming because they are weak and feeble. We use volunteers to help these grannies to plant crops in their farms. We facilitate planting of food crops like bananas, corn, beans, vegetables, and fruits. The goal here is to create a sustainable community that can care for orphans years to come. In this program we donate seeds to these homes, and facilitate the planting of the seeds with the help of volunteers. In time, the grannies in our program will have more food in their homes, hence a sustainable life. We are in need of resources to make this program a success. We need resources to facilitate purchase of seedlings, and fertilizer. We also need more volunteers in this program to help with the planting of the seedlings. Please support our program.
Childcare protection program
Casaupendo supports childcare protection program. Together with the children office in Tranzoia County, we are going to launch a childcare protection program to sensitize the community on issues that deal with childcare and protection. The goal here is to have a community that supports orphans and keep them safe from child slavery, harassment, child labor, rape, and mistreatment. We wish to reduce the cases of teenage pregnancy in the region. We would also wish to provide our orphans with an environment that is healthy to live and study. We use volunteers for this program. Selected volunteers will attend a childcare protection training at the county and in turn use the skills gained to create awareness in the region on childcare and protection issues. This program is going to be launched soon. We need more partners and volunteers to help the program a success. Some volunteers will help create awareness in the community. Please enroll in our program.
HIV/AIDs awareness program
Casaupendo would like to handle the orphan challenge from the route course. At least 90% of the orphans in our program lost their parents due to the HIV/AIDs Manace. Creating the awareness on HIV/AIDs prevention techniques, testing,a nd treatment will help reduce the harm. We are going to launch this program soon. We are in desperate need of partners and volunteers to make this program a success. If you have access to any resource that can help reduce have and save a life, please get in touch with us immediately. Feel free to sign up as a volunteer in this program.
Alcohol and drug use Prevention
We can cannot talk about harm reduction without mentioning the alcohol and drug problem. Alcohol and drug problem contribute to high rates of HIV/AIDs infection which leads to many deaths and many orphans suffering. As such, Casaupendo CBO supports programs that can help prevent Alcohol and drug use in the village we operate in. The program involves sensitizing the community on the dangers of alcohol and drug use, and provide information on the treatment alternatives for the affected families. Casaupendo CBO will facilitate the training of volunteers in areas of preventing alcohol and drug use. Trained volunteers will create awareness in schools and help reduce the use of Alcohol and drugs. We need partners and volunteers to make this program a success. We are going to launch prevention seminars to help create awareness on the issue.
Washable Sanitary towel program
Casaupendo orphanage operates in rural Kenya, where women cannot afford simple hygiene products like sanitary towels. Most families survive on one dollar a day, yet the available brands of hygiene products are too expensive to afford. Casaupendo orphanage is looking forward to sewing washable sanitary for the orphans in our home as well as orphans in our neighborhood who have no way of getting menstrual health products. To support this program, you can donate directly towards purchase of an industrial sewing machine, fabric, and thread that we need to roll the project and maintain it.
Casaupendo orphanage has a great need of clothing. Our children go through clothing so fast. It is now a cold season because of rains and our children need warm sweaters and warm clothing. We are having a huge need of sweaters and clothing. Casaupendo orphanage has a goal of sewing our own clothing and sweaters for our children. We need an industrial sewing machine for sewing and an industrial knitting sewing machine to make sweaters as well as yarn. You can support this project by sending a gift directly towards purchase of sewing machines and yarn and you will be providing all the children in our home a gift of clothing.
