Donation of funds for school uniforms and shoes
In December 2019 with funding received from kind Orphan Outreach supporters, the Headmaster was able to place as order for 84 school uniforms and (174) pairs of strong school shoes and socks for the of the children at Patmos Junior School.
The uniforms were made by the women in the Patmos Women's Tailoring Group which is an income generating initiative that was set up in 2014 to help some of the mothers and guardians of children at the school earn a living to support their families.
The school shoes were made by a shoe maker in Mathare using traditional skills and the woollen sweaters were knitted by a woman also in Mathare.
By using local people to make these items the school is able to provide valuable work for these people whilst at the same time keeping the cost of the items at a reasonable level.
