DAISY CENTRE AND SCHOOL- A PLACE OF HOPE What you can do for changing hope to reality
Short term goals - Saving the achievments • Coveringtherunningcosts • Secureness • Toconfiguretheschoolwithbooksandteachingmaterials • Advancededucationoftheteachersandassistants
Covering the running costs • Electricity: Bringing light in the life of those children, means as well to support with the costs of electricity in the school and orphanage so that electrical lamps instead of paraffin lamps, that impair the eyes, can be used . The monthlyelectricity bill fortheschool: 6000 kes = about 50 EUR
Coveringtherunningcosts :The children of the school recieve one pott of porridge during the breaks, three times a week and one warm meal every day, mostly rice or maize with beans. • lunch250 childrenconsume 75 kg ofrice per weekand 40 kg ofbeans. 50 kg ofricecosts 2950-3150 KES. 20 kg ofbeanscosts 5000 KES. Total costsapprox. 1 10.100 KES = 85 EUR monthly costs for lunch - 250 children 40.400 KES = 340 EUR • Porridge (cereals and sugar)monthly costs for porridge - 250 children: 6000 KES = 50 EUR. • Milk Many parents cannot afford milk for their children. We have the joy to offer some milk to them by using our own cows. But the cows create costs too: costs for cows per months 9500 KES = 80 EUR • We want to offer fresh fruits to the kids . One fruit costs about 5 KES. Costsfor 1 x fruits per weekfor 250 children: 1250 KES = 10 EURCostsfor 2 x vruits per weekfor 250 children: 2500 KES = 20 EURCostsfor 1 x fruits per weekforonewholemonths: 5000 KES = 40 EUR
SAVING the achievments – our children during lunch time and on the schoolyard

School booksandteaching material The centerhas a hugechallengewithacquiringtextbooksfor an efficientservingof all thechildrenandensuringqualityeducation. 600 copiesof different syllabusbooksandgeneralreadingbooksareneeded. Childrenusethebookstogether; thebooksbelongtotheschool. Depending on the subject, one book costs between 250 and 600 KES (= 2 till 5 EUR) Using an averagepriceof 350 KES per copy 600 copiescost 210.000 KES = 1.763 EUR It‘s also possible to just support single books or little packages. Everyone is happy for getting books outside of the normal study range as well, because a book can open the view to a new world.
