About Me

My name is Salome Ondego. I come from Usire Village, Bondo Sub-County ,Siaya County in Kenya. I am married with six children.
I am a teacher by profession and is self employed. I am involved in education of children and community development projects in the rural village to improve livelihoods and poverty alleviation.
I am also a farmer. I plant crops like maize, beans , vegetables fruits and sugarcane. I keep livestock too. I love planting trees as a way of conserving the environment.

My Business

I am the Director of Ebenezer Usire Academy, a low cost private primary school established in the rural village to provide quality education to vulnerable children, especially the girl child.
The school was started in 2014 and has a population of 258 pupils from ECDE to Grade 8.
The funds generated from fees payments is used to pay staff salaries and for lunch preparation. The school makes a profit of roughly 25,000 kes. The school bakery project has increased our profits. Thanks to the Zidisha Family. Some of this money usually is used for maintenance of the school buildings, and sponsoring some of the children who have difficulty in paying their school fees.

Project Proposal

The funds will be used to purchase 4,000 litres water storage tank for our school. During dry seasons we experience serious water shortage and access to clean drinking water for the children is usually a big challenge. We will use the tank to harvest rain water which will be mainly for drinking. This will reduce water born diseases which are usually rampant due to water scarcity. The funds to be raised is kes 38,197.
