Mikwano SACCO

Hello Everyone!

We have some awesome updates on Mikwano Savings and Credit Cooperative.
In February of this year, they established a new board and have since worked hard to reach out around the community. In doing so, they have opened 28 new savings accounts and managed two loan cycles of about 10 borrowers!

Congratulations to the new board!

New Mikwano Committee Members

Hello All!

We have had some awesome things happening!

We elected new committees for Mikwano SACCO, to be chaired and vice-chaired by Mazzi Paul and Walalkira Joseph. They will be helping us identify loan recipients and work with members to make sure their needs are being met.
These committees are important so that members can communicate how they’d like Mikwano managed, in terms of promotions as well as finding and vetting new clients.

Clinic Dorms and Tippy Tap!

Hey everyone!

We have some cool things happening!

We are making great progress on the dorms for our doctors and nurses working at the clinic!

We also had students from #DaemenCollege visit and they installed a #tippytap by the kitchen and bathrooms at the school! 

A Tippy Tap “is a hands free way to wash your hands where there is no running water. It is operated by a foot lever and thus reduces the chance for bacteria transmission as the user touches only the soap”.  To learn more about the Tippy Tap, head over to www.tippytap.org

Local Clinic Tour

Hey Everyone!
Here are the St. Bonaventure students touring a local clinic. During their tour, they shadowed doctors and other medical students while they visited patients who are suffering from malaria, flu, and other communicable diseases.
