Provide School Shoes to Kenyan Orphans

Life in a Kenyan Boarding School

Project Director Abigael Onchiri talks about her experiences in school in Kenya.  Abigael is now a Senior in East Lansing High School., East Lansing, MI.

What I remember and probably miss about education in Kenya is the school dress code particularly the school uniform.  I remember with nostalgia how all students in my school looked fabulous in their uniforms.  Those who did not have the required uniforms were always sent home to buy.  In my former school, our uniform included a white blouse, checked black and white skirt, red sweater, and black shoes.  We were also required to buy sports shoes, shorts and a T-shirt.  What I did not like was when some students made fun of those who had old or torn sweaters, socks or shoes.  Those students who were made fun of felt sad and sometimes cried.
