"Umoja is our mother"

Jack
Jack

A former pupil of Ogada Primary and Bar Union secondary school, Jack completed his KCSE this past year and is now working as a Project Assistant for Umoja as he waits to join university. When asked about the impact the Umoja Project has had on him, Jack spoke not only of himself, but also of his fellow pupils and the bonds that Umoja has fostered.

You will find that the Umoja students often get together; we form bonds. We say ‘Umoja is our mother’, because she is the one who has brought us up – the one who has brought us here.

The way that Jack speaks of his Umoja family is evident in the way that he works within the project as well. Always smiling and full of life, Jack walks alongside his Umoja colleagues with compassion and joy – and his presence is as bright as his favorite pair of highlighter-yellow trousers! Of course, his vivaciousness in the present and anticipation for the future in no way bury his depth of gratitude for the project’s impact on his life thus far.

You will also notice that the most successful students in schools are often Umoja – that is because we are so grateful for the opportunity we have been given – and we know it would be a shame to waste it. We work hard because we know that there are so many people who have worked hard to give us that chance.

It is through your generous support that such chances are given. On behalf of Jack and all other project assistants, we thank you for securing futures worth smiling for!
