Hope At Last

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of HOPE AT LAST Victorious Children’s Home will like for long in my mind for what they have done for me. It is not easy after you become an orphan to get very good caring people like it has come to happen to me. This has made me forget all about my own dead parents completely. In Kiswahili there is a saying that says ‘Yaliyopita si ndwele tuyagange yaajayo.’ Meaning that you should not let the past to hinder your tomorrow. This Home opened a new chapter for me in the provision of food, accommodation, and provision of education in 2004 such that this year I am in class 4 headed to pursue my dream of becoming a surgeon. Our home will do very well if it gets more financial support because we are two many needy children in this school. I am Bradly Prince. Read more.
