We have been plagued by constant power outages here which means that this report will be a brief one to get it submitted before our (sole) power supplier strikes again!
We would like to give you an update on Jacob who is in his final year of studies (hurray!). Jacob has just had a short break and is back in university. So far this year, there have been no further interruptions to his studies due to Covid and we are hopeful that he will get to complete his course on schedule. His last exam results were very encouraging also.
Abel has now graduated and is actively seeking employment. This is proving to be a challenge due to Covid hampering travel and employment prospects but he is at least finding some part time casual work to help sustain himself on the meantime and we have been assisting with his house rent.
Any support you can offer is always gratefully received. These boys have overcome many obstacles and we are very proud of them.
Thanks to the amazing support received from donors and thanks to his very hard work and determination in overcoming all the obstacles put in his way throughout his life, Abel has finished university, passed his final exams with flying colours and will (subject to Covid) be attending his graduation ceremony next month! We are all thrilled with his performance and achievements. This young man has excelled beyond all expectations and we are so proud of him.
Abel is now hoping to find a job in the world of agriculture to put his degree to good use and to become self-sufficient. That will be the next obstacle to overcome as jobs are not easy to find in the current climate but we hope he will be successful as he deserves to be.
In the meantime, Jacob returned to university a few weeks ago when the current lockdown was lifted and is much encouraged by Abel's performance to push through his last year and graduate.
Child Rescue Kenya will be keeping this project active in order to continue to raise support for Jacob but we plan to either set up a new project or make changes to this one to enable us to raise support for a number of other youths in our community we are trying to assist with various types of third level education, in particular vocational training. So, watch this space!
Thank you to everyone who helped Abel successfully complete university!
Abel and Jacob returned to university two weeks ago. They are catching up on the term time lost to the Covid 19 lockdown last year. Both are happy to be back and seeing their course passing by, with final exams and graduation getting closer. This is Abel's last semester - at least it will be if there are no further delays or lockdowns. He is now getting excited about the prospect of starting his career in the very near future.
Jacob still has a little over a year to go but at least he can see progress being made.
Both boys have maintained an excellent grade average and have taken this opportunity very seriously indeed. We hope that they will stay safe and healthy and that the current low impact of Covid 19 on the health of Kenyans remains that way.
The financial problems suffered by various supporters and donors over the past year have made it a challenge to keep both boys on their course but they are so close now and have performed so well that they deserve to be top of our priorities. Every cent helps them achieve a goal which will be a wonderful achievement for two boys who have been determined to get off the streets and to make the best of themselves. Please help them get there!
