University expenses for former street children

University expenses for former street children

Project Report | Dec 31, 2018
Looking forward to 2019

By Theresa Heasman | Development Director

We have come to the end of 2018 and our boys have successfully concluded another step closer to their degrees. The university’s held exams for students just before Christmas and many only managed to leave for their homes on 23rd December and had to join the mass exodus from various cities to get to their home counties. Buses were jam packed and charging almost double the usual fares but everyone desperately wanted to be home with friends and family for Christmas rather than spending it alone in their university accommodation.

Our boys, Jacob and Abel, were no exception to this and made their way back to Kitale to spend time in familiar and friendly surroundings.   Both boys have worked hard this past year. Jacob received his exam results for his first year and has A’s and B’s in the five blocks of subjects in his course. We are confident that he will stay the course and graduate successfully. Abel is a year ahead of him and is awaiting results in January and we shall keep you up to date but, again, he is determined to succeed.

It is stressful for both boys knowing they are dependent on our support and that we in turn are dependent on donors to be able to keep them in university. We are proud of these boys and how far they have come, and we hope that their stories will encourage supporters to provide a chance for them to complete their studies.

Jacob and Abel wish you all the very best for 2019, as do we all at Child Rescue Kenya!
