Nineteen years ago - when those little nursery school-aged children were brought to the LIve and Learn in Kenya office by parents or guardians nobody would have imagined that the skinny, hungry and raggedly dressed children would be wearing caps and gowns and being handed over their well-earned diplomas at renowned Kenyan universities!
These four university students from our project graduated! The lovely and very intelligent Luciana graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree in Christian Religious Education and Kiswahili. James graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Mathematics. Titus graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree in Mathematics and Chemistry and Erick graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication and Journalism. We are so proud of all of them. At the moment there are 12 LLK students at various Kenyan universities. One of them will be graduating in April 2020.
Of course not all of Live and Learn in Kenya International's children are able to go on to university. We are able to give all of the children the possibility to be all that they can be - no matter what that may be! Hundreds of our project's children have gone on to colleges and vocational training and are learning to be their dream - or have already dreamt their dream and made it a reality... Sometimes a young woman just wants to be married and have children of her own - and that's all right too. But they will have a better understanding of what education means because they can read and write and give their own children the same possibilities.
This is what sponsorship means - receiving everything to be all that you can be - and then passing it forward to others and to future generations.
Who is making it all possible? YOU!
We atLive and Learn in Kenya wish all of you a bright, loving, healthy and peaceful 2020!
