Report from Kingeero Projects- Gabriel Gathungu

The last quarter and first of 2021 have been faced by critical challenges caused by the pandemic of COVID 19.  fear and anxiety have been the order of the day, when the government introduced curfew and restriction of movement as well as gatherings our activities slowed down. Most activities were affected to reduce contacts, such as home visits, weekly meetings, IGA  such as baking, yogurt making as they demanded a close contact,  to our shock, Covid 19 has greatly affected every area of our lives social spiritual and economic.



  1. 400 families have benefited with food  ratios
  2. 187 counseling sessions
  3. 101 referrals  for counseling
  4.  28 referrals for  treatment
  5. 58  given clothing
  6. 21 labour opportunities


  • With the facilitation of our UNION( EKUC), I coordinated training on GBV and HIV/AIDS  and hosted by Wangige Level 4 Hospital where government officials and community leaders attended.


  • We have attended Kiambu County leaders meetings on School-based programs on GBV, Svac, and HIV.


  • Through the Wangige Level 4 Hospital on 17/03/2021, I was invited and give a talk to some over 100 cash labours, the talk was on HIV/AIDS, ALCOHOLISM, DRUGS ABUSE, GBV, and child protection which has become a major threat to our children which has been greatly caused by the Covid 19 storms.


  • During the last year’s World Aids day, it was a great success because including our Church more of our Churches joined.


  • On 1st December I was given an opportunity to have a talk show in one of our country’s national vernacular Radio stations where I talked about HIV/ AIDS pandemic, spread, management, and the role of the Church. It was a shock because of the number of the people who made phone calls seeking clarifications, information other distress calls due to economic and social challenges calling for support especially support groups because many have collapsed.


  • In January I  had a TV show with Hope Channel Kenya on HIV/AIDS, DRUGS on relation to families and Economic Challenges  hosted by Catherine Nyameino


  • Our IGA at the Church has stalled because of the government hygiene requirements which require money. These are putting of tiles, planting of  LPG gas, plastering of walls etc.


  • Finances


  • Fear of the Covid 3rd wave which the Government is saying that it more deadly
