Who we are? Read our Story
Ficha Uchi campaign was initiated on February 2015, after a teacher approached and asked Billian Okoth Ojiwa, who is the founder of the campaign, to help him obtain school uniform for some five pupils in his school who were barely walking naked due to their torn uniforms.After studying the area, the founder noticed that the problem was wide spread and thus decided to bring other people on board and started the campaign.Genesis Primary School was our first beneficiary on 7th March 2015, when they got 100 uniforms.We plan to restore dignity of more than 10,000 children by the end of this year.
Ficha Uchi is a Swahili word which means ‘Hide Nakedness’. Ficha Uchi Campaign aims to restore dignity of primary school going children by providing them with decent school uniforms to replace their tattered ones. Pupils going to school putting on tattered uniforms thus exposing their body parts is a major problem in the country, affecting mostly children from destitute backgrounds. Most of their parents or guardians can barely afford decent uniforms and this is what we aim to solve. We also aim to start a national conversation on the issue of tattered uniforms so that we can come up with a lasting solution to this menace
