Jecinter's smile


Having lost her parents at an early age, Jecinter Naliaka has gone through many challenges which led her to seek refuge to relatives for her living. Its only last month when Jecinter lost her relative who has been taking care of her. This made her move to her step grandparent because she needed someone who understood her well and who could take care of her as an orphan. Her step grandparent who surely struggles everyday to get food for her and other children that he lives with could not to support in paying her school fees which saw her sent out of school every time. After meeting Juhudi, jecinter’s school fees has been paid and know she is back in school getting the formal education in Kenya. Jecinter has taken a very big responsibility in her school as a peer educator whose passion is to see other young boys and girls excel in education and life. She frequently trains others in various areas of development. ‘Am happy that I can be in school as other children and promise to give out very good results as I continue to help others as a peer educator’.
