A Day for Women - Every day is... Celestine

A Day for Women - Every day is - or at least should be. Today we are highlighting Celestine.

Celestine has been a Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l child since childhood. Now she is off to college!

Celestine was born into desolate poverty. She comes from a family of 5 children, 3 boys, and 2 girls. Her single mother (a widow) does temporary/casual jobs to generate income for the entire family. Her father died in 2000.  With an irregular and very low income, her mother is unable to provide the basic needs for her children.

When her mother wisely and successfully registered her onto the Live and Learn in Kenya International program over 11 years ago Celestine was a scared little girl. She started nursery school and blossomed into a happy, smiling chubby-cheeked little girl. But soon her world fell apart again. When she was in first grade her mother died - as did her father - of AIDS. Over the 11 years with Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l she worked hard. She successfully finished elementary school and went on to high school in Nakuru. Her grades were very good. She's a hard worker with a bright mind. Her older sister took care of her - very good care. They are a very humble Catholic family. Their tribe is Luo.

Now Celestine is studying Supply Chain Management at the Kiirua Technical Training Institute. SHE WILL NOT ONLY SURVIVE - SHE WILL THRIVE!

We would not have been able to support Celestine - like hundreds of other children like her - if it weren't for people like YOU!

Asante Sana - thank you so much!
