They're doing ok

By Theresa Heasman | Development Director

Our boys are doing ok.  They are both still in university and obtaiining top grades. Jacob completed an internship in Eldoret town in his last term.  This was good work experience for him but also posed challenges in finding accommodation and being out on his own in a place where he knew no one.  Abel had a short break in August for holiday but is now back to the grindstone.  

Both boys, we are sure, are eagerly anticipating the short break they will get over Christmas which will enable them to come back to Kitale, catch up with friends and have a well deserved rest.  

Neither boy would be where they are now without the help and support of Child Rescue Kenya's supporters who have enabled them to transition from life on the streets of Kitale town to earning top marks in university.  Both of these boys face a bright, hope filled future thanks to you and they intend to do you proud!

Thanks for your continued support - we will post some pictures when we see the boys over Christmas!
