A Truely Motivational Input

I am Jackie from Victorious Childrens's Home in Kakamega Central District.Ufunguo Child Role Model Development tried to do something to help me as well as many other students.The organisation shot is even higher by reaching Form 4 candidates and STD 8 last year 2010.Their success cards were indeed inspiring and filled with something from God.I was in Museli Girls and got my success card which greatly motivated me,the many physical supplies they contineously bought for me not withstanding. What really beckoned the instincts in me to run was this motivational tour we did to Kogelo,the US president's ancestral home,where we made a historical encounter with Mama Sara Obama.Number 20(optional Im in second row in red standing,just behind mama Sara-seated at the centre first row
