Dear supporter 
November has been an exciting month for Pursue Kenya. We have spent time planning and budgeting for our projects next year, which will include teacher development seminars; hospital support work; a marriage course; table banking initiatives; adult Literacy classes and continued work with our widows groups to grow income generating projects. 

Marriage course launch

The picture above shows some of the men that Sulu, our Projects Director, has been meeting with weekly during the course of this year. None of these men have regular jobs and they face struggles with addiction, poverty and family pressures.Through the close relationships that have built up through this mentorship group, all 12 of the men have suggested that Pursue begins a marriage and parenting course with them and their wives. This month we held the launch event for our Marriage Course, which every couple attended (except one lady who came alone because her husband was too sick to come). We had a wonderful 3 hours together sharing food, stories and laughter, and looking forward to the weekly meetings that we'll be having in the New Year. It's difficult to explain just how counter-cultural it is to see a group of men suggesting couples work, so we are really excited to see marriages, and whole families, transformed as a result of this community-led initiative. 
Our Christmas gift shop is an opportunity to buy a meaningful gift for the people we work with. These include:
  • Classroom learning materials for under-resourced schools
  • Hospital care packages for new mothers

Partnering for change

There are a number of NGOs working in Western Kenya, and this month we've been able to connect with some of them to help the individuals that we work with. The malnourished child whose family we've been working with is now getting expert social work support from a children's rescue centre. Our second widows group have recently been enrolled in a trial with One Acre Fund to help improve their crop production on their 1/4 acre plots. And last week, our two Community Helping Hands took part in a training to increase their skills and knowledge in treating Tungiasis. We love connecting and creating partnerships with others that are pursuing the same vision; to see individuals, families and communities lifted out of poverty. 
Tungiasis training run by CTPK.
Our widows group will receive weekly training to help improve their crop production from their small "shambas" (plots of land).
