My Dream Of Success Will Come To Pass

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega Central, Kenya
Map of MY DREAM OF SUCCESS WILL COME TO PASS My name is Joseph Shikeji. I am a form four student of Shikunga secondary school. But for me to reach form four, to come this far, it has taken the hard of God. Being an opharn whose parents were lost quite a while ago while I was still infant, I had no reason hoping to see another day. Everything was impossible. My ralatives tried helping me but failed as they too had their own children to take care of. In 2007 I was lucky when I got a chance to stay in Kakamega opharns care centre. I was taken to Amalemba primary school from where my hard work earned me a chance in high school. I believe I will do my form 4 exam and pass and that in future I will be a banker. Read more.

By a male, 22-30 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Helping Jason About some four years ago,when i was in primaryy school;there was this partivcular bright student named jason. The guy was extremly smart in books but there was one thing which seemed to affected him and that was poverty in their home. He could often come to school without necessities like enough books and other supplementaries to asssist him during studies.Though it was areal struggle to him but he managed to pull it off until he approached the nationnal examinations.He did it with the others and when the results were out he had posted exemplary results.He even managed to scoop the best position in the whole district.He was called to a national school but then cropped up.He had no one to pay his high school fees.He could not locate one.Fortunately an individual by the name plus shistsama a pastor by profession volunteered to pay the boys school fees throughout high schoo. The boy finished medicine at teh university.Were it not for that good samaritan his hopes would have been quashed definately. Read more.

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of Mismanaged funds It had changed lives of many children especially in kibera and the surroundings as they offered to pay school fees for children who wanted to go to school and they did not get the resources to get them going. They gave even uniform and they were offered a chance to choose which school they want to go. Any school that was chosen by the child it was there expense to ensure that the child sees the door open for him/her . Riara schools failed lately when the heartless and greedy Aficans who have big stomach and never get satisfied mismanaged the funds that were brought in by donours to help these vulnerable children get education.
