Give SUPPORT to enable me spread my wings to love, feed, play, nurture and take care of the little children.
I want to offer a safe, clean,reliable affordable and reliable daycare services in our area, an environment that lets kids develop socially and intellectually. I am targeting babies aged 4 months- 4 years since this is the age that is usually at home all day long. To relieve mums around some time to take care of their homes, go to work and earn. A home away from home that will let the parents and babies have a piece of mind while away from each other.
Most of the women in Kenya go through so many challenges raising their children, more so small kids since they have more demanding needs. Personally, I have gone through post-partum depression in 2012 due to the fact that I couldn't be able to adequately cater for my baby's needs singlehandedly. I totally understand the pressure women go through trying to balance house chores, work, and family financial demands.
Daycares are a savior in time of crisis that happens in the parenting journey more so due to nanny issues and work-related demands. You will agree that we mothers would want and wish to.raise our babies all by ourselves. But considering the tough economic times in our country, it becomes quite impossible and working becomes inevitable.
I have seen a tendency of small babies being left in their homes under no supervision as their parents go to work in order to put a meal on the table for the family. Others babies are left to cry for so long as the mothers are busy with the chores which result in stress in babies.
Lately, there has been also plenty of cases of children mistreatment by their nannies at home. This has sent shivers down many parent's spines, literally. With the complete understanding of this, I am having these working mums at heart too. Mums who prefer and feel comfortable and peaceful dropping their babies in a daycare and picking them in the evening.
I want to be the solution women are looking for, an affordable daycare where their gems are loved, nurtured and well taken care of. I will engage more caregivers to assist in giving the best to the gems under my supervision. My only limiting factor to making this happen is the limitation of funds to set up the center.
With your support, I will be able to spread the love and make a positive impact on the households around me.
With your support, I will be able to make this dream come true.
With your support, I will feel so much at peace living a purposeful life!
Thank you so much for your support, emotional or monetary.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!
