Pillar of hope

Eric joined Sports for Change 7 years ago. He was very shy and antisocial. He  liked to stay on his own during our students meetings. Over the years, his self esteemed went up, his confidence increased and he started migling with other students. He also shared his life and school challeges with our motivational coach. All our students come from disadvantaged back ground with different challeges. Sharing personal challeges helps us to mentor and advise them individually.

 

He sat for his KCSE(  (Kenya Certifcate secondary Education) in 2013 but dint not perform very well. His dream was to join university and his grade was low. He decided to try again. That meant going back to school for another whole year.In 2014 he did KCSE again and passed with a B grade. He was admitted to Masinde Muliro's university in Kakamega to do bachelors in Fisheries and Agro-chemistry..

Eric come from a  humble back ground. He is the first born in a family of 4. He was raised by a single mother who struggled to feed and cloth them. His siblings are going throuh the same struggles with the mother but Eic is determined to change this. During school holidays, he helps the mother in her day to day casual jobs. With combined effort they are doing better and can manage to feed  his young siblings. He has become the pillar of hope in his family.

We are proud of the young responsible man he has become. His discipline and hardwork has shown great results.

We thank everyone who have joined us in shaping his future. We could not have done it without your support.

Eric need more support to complete his course. Consider giving a gift of education this Chrsitmas.

Merry Christmass and happy new year!
