PLMT has developed a project called Rescue Kiota which is registered as a community based program. Kiota is a bird’s nest in Kiswahili. Our first Kiota was established in Central Kenya, Murang’a County in April 2011 and the second in Kwale County in June 2015. To date, the Kiotas have provided temporary shelter to 107 girls in crisis pregnancy, of which 95 girls have been sheltered in Murang’a and 12 in Kwale.
In Murang’a Kiota there are projects such as the dairy cow whose milk feeds the girls and the rest is sold for sustainability. The second project is the chicken rearing, the girls feed on the eggs and some are sold to generate income.
As a way of raising funds,PLMT in partnership with Mineral Water Bottling Companies supply branded water as a source of income and raising awareness of the project. The mineral water is bottled in 300ml, 500ml, 1L, 1.5L, 5L, 10L and 20L. This serves both as a marketing strategy and a source of funding to the Trust’s mandate.
Let us all join Kiota Rescue Homes in the ongoing chicks project campaign to support girls in the home by complementing operational cost, help nutrition boost and share poultry skills education to the girls and community. A chick for sh. 1000 will support the girls 'chicks' thus sh. 1000 a chick for chicks.
