Project Report | May 7, 2014
Leaders are readers

By Emily Obiti | Field Worker

During the recent school holidays Sylvester stopped by the Turning Point library for a visit. He seemed very well and his growing love for books was evident as he explored the library and got sucked into Salmon Rushdie's Midnight children. Certainly, the experience of going to university is really broadening Sylvesters experiences and perspectives and he is hungry to learn more and more.

In the last report, I noted that sylvester has been looking for part-time work. As yet he has not found any, this is so often the case in Kenya where jobs are few and applicants are many. He is considering changing to finish off his degree in evening classes to give him more opportunities to find work during the week. This is something that social worker Gladys and other staff can sit and talk through with Sylvester to help him make the best decision.

It was wonderful to have Sylvester visit the library where many younger primary school pupils are studying hard and working on their homework. For them to meet Sylvester who shares their community and background and for them to see him studying and prospering in university is a real inspiration to many of them.

Thank you everyone who is supporting Sylvester, certainly your giving is not only impcting Sylvester but his family and those younger ones who look up to him in the community. Thank you.
