Never Say Die

Life is usually difficult and pathetic when you comefrom a peasant family but then the misery is further graviated when one is an orphan. This is as far as Kamau thought during his chilhood days. He never got achance to see his parents for they had died when he was still 2 years old and since then he has been forced to live with his aunt who didn't really like him. Despite this he managed to excel in his education and got a well paying job. He has set up the orphans for orphans foundation to help those children orphaned and in dire need of assistance.
