Dear Sports for change supporters,

Iam so glad to inform you that Iam now a certified Clinical Officer after accomplishing 3yrs diploma course in Clinical medicine & surgery and an internship for one year.

I did my internship at Tabaka mission hospital in kisii country -kenya .I worked in four departments, each department was took 3 months. My first duty in surgical ward, I learnt how to perform minor surgeries like removal of ganglion, application of plasters, I did reduction of fractures, suturing of wounds and many other general practices.
My second department was in Pediatric , I learnt how to fix intravenous canulars, resuscitation of new borns and treatment of different conditions.
My third department was in Medical, I managed conditions and emergencies, in gym/OBS department I did deliveries, I worked as an assistance during tubal ligation, uterus evacuation, treatment of abnormal bleeding . At the end I obtained a licence after internship- this document shows that am allowed to work and treat general illness and conditions.

My big dream is to go back to school and complete a degree in medicine and surgery. I know it will take me some years to finish, but Iam so determined and focused to the main goal .

I got my license during the covid-19 pandemic, I feel this is when my services are needed the most. Iam confident and ready to help my community in whatever way. Iam currently volunteering at a local hospital in my village. My main focus is too create more awareness on Covid-19 becuase some people especially the young ones are not taking the diesease serious. My duty is to empahsise on the importance of wearing masks, washing hands and avoid crowrded areas.I tell young people that they have to follow all precautions for the sake of their grandparents. We have alot of old people in the village who must be protected. I get masks donated by friends and distribute them to those who can not afford. 

My special gratitute goes to Dean Pritchard, one of Sports For Change big supporters. He has sponsored my education since form two until I completed my diploma course. I joined Sports For Change young and broken. My family had nothing after been evicted from our home of many years during Kenya's post election violence in 2007/2008. I have been under Sports For Change for 11 years and the support and guidance during holiday leadership camps have made me whole again. Iam ready to give back by serving my community and the world at large.

To anyone who support young people through education,I would like to thank you on behalf of those you support.Iam a testimony of how education can change someone's life. Education is key to opportunities. A ticket out of poverty.  Iam full of hope, my family and my community have hope in me, many generations will benefit out of this kindness and support I got from Dean through Sports for Change. Thank you for investing in my life. 

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
