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 HIV/AIDS survivor needs school uniform

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Ismael O., a secondary Kenya student born in 1994, needs a uniform to remain in school. Both of his parents died from HIV/AIDS.

In addition to the secondary school education, Ishmael is learning farming skills in an orphanage project assisted by Hope In Action. While a uniform is his immediate need, support is also needed for food, school fees, health care and clothing. Ishmael wants to learn skills that will help provide support at the orphanage where he lives now, and later as a head of household.
