AIC LITEIN CHILDREN’S HOME
The Success story and most significant change
AIC Litein Children’s home was given grace period of four months from April 2010 to September 2010 to see what will happen before the final decision of its closure.It turned to be an opportunity for a new Manager Mr. Richard Rono when he reported as the new manager on 1st April 2010. Skilled and passionate in care and protection of children he turned around the face (outlook) of the center and progressively into other areas which he succeeded and made Litein children’s home a place to be desired to be visited by many people.
Some of the achievements could be felt is the development and implementation of various activities for the interest of the child. Children were taken to academy schools to improve their performance, strict schedule on adherence to rules and regulation of the CCI by both children and the staff. Behavior change and correction, improved record keeping, transparent procedures, improved relationship between the management and staff as well as the community. Also Children were enrolled to NHIF scheme, reintegration done appropriately, Massive renovation and improved working systemsand improved foodsecurity projects/IGA
The former fence made ofiron sheets was removed and a perimeter wall constructed that doubles as business stalls facing the hospital, old workshop building turned to be modern guest house, plain field turned to be a banana plantation and a green house erected in a well planned garden . There is financial management and quality reports in place and that proves an achievement of the program goal and objectives.
The following are some of the captivating photos taken then before and after.
