Kenya orphan needs school fees to become nurse

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Kenya orphan Edith A.

My name is Edith A. I live in a rural area of Kenya with my mother and 2 younger sisters. I was born in 1994. I attended secondary school until recently when the school sent me home until the school fees were paid. My father died when I was 9. My mother is in poor health and is very weak.

I have learned to raise vegetables at a nearby orphanage where Hope In Action helped expand the garden with equipment and plants that were new to our area. I am learning tailoring skills on some sewing machines that Hope In Action provided for the orphanage. I like spending time at the orphanage because of the love and concern for me there, and I like playing games and singing.

My greatest desire now is to be able to return to school and complete my education. I want to be a nurse, but the school fees and books are a big problem.

Kenya orphan grows vegetables to help pay for school

Sarah C
Hi-My name is Sarah C. I am 14 and attend secondary school, form one. Life is hard since my father died from an asthmatic attack. My mother earns less than a dollar each day by farming. I am learning about gardening at an orphanage where I planted and harvested pumpkins, tomatoes, cowpeas and watermelons. The garden project was sponsored by Hope In Action. The food I grew helped us have more to eat, and we had a little left to sell. I saved some seeds and will plant a bigger garden soon. I want to sell more vegetables so I can pay my school fees. There is a computer at the orphanage and I hope to hear from you. Maybe we can be friends.
