Together Securing Futures, Making Dreams Come True

Dear friends and partners,

Many of you are aware of the risk young girls and boys face in the world today. From radicalization, child labour, prostitution, child trafficking just to name a few. You and I both know that whenever we give children an education, we give them a bettter fightingchance against some of these destroyers of destiny.

Over the past few days there has been pictures and stories going round on human rights abuses by members of the polic who killed two children extra judicially. It was heart wrenching to say the least. As I thought about these children- they were about sixteen years of age- I quickly thought about a young man about two years older in our school and asked him what he thought about the incident. I asked him whether he ad seen the clip. 

It was not shocking to hear him say he knew the boys. He has a history of crime and drugs behind him. But now...he is focused on his studies and his music career dream both of which we are working to help him achieve. He says of his past...

I used to be part of this gang sometime back. We would take drugs. One time I took "lags" and slept for 24 straight hours. It was a terrible life.

Currently he has been working hard on his academics. Even though he missed some classes he has managed to stay oon course to complete his K.C.P.E (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) course. When he was selecting his choice of Seconadry schools, he could not hide his joyas he proudly proclaimed..." This is a dream come true. I never thought this moment would ever come!" 

As we get back to class, he says he will compose a song to the fallen soldiers. I wonder if I ever looked at children in situations like that as soldiers! Fighting for their lives, fighting against societal ills that allure them, for some even to the most cruel deaths. I want to be a soldier...to fight for their future...to give them something better...to fight with...EDUCATION. Thank you for being part of this fighting force through your giving and support.
