IS IT WORTH IT?

John
John's marks

Is it worth it? You decide –here is one example -

 John Kimotho Gachau came to Expanding Opportunities’ children’s home, JWHS, in the year 2004. His single mother had died in 1997 and he was living with his grandmother. She was not able to educate John or provide for his basic needs. He was passed to other relatives occasionally but they too were unable to assist him. His step-grandfather approached us for help.

 John joined JWHS in 2004 and attended public school in Class Five. He performed well both in the Home and in school. When he reached high school, we enrolled him in ROHI High School.

 Expanding Opportunities does not usually assist children past High School except for a short course to obtain vocational skills. But John had a sponsor who wanted to take him to college. She first paid for him to reenroll in ROHI to try to obtain a B+ and therefore be eligible for a bursary, (scholarship). He received a B plain on both KCSE examinations. She then enrolled him in a short course and began to seek a college for him. She assisted him to enroll in JKUAT in 2014, then she herself had a financial crisis and is no longer able to assist John.

 Struggling for funding and grateful for all that is done for him; Expanding Opportunities and John are moving slowly forward. In his first year,he has received all A’s and Bs in his courses. He is positive, grateful and ready to continue to work hard, do well, get a good job and give back to other needy kids.  

 YES IT IS WORTH IT.
