Kenya orphan needs school fees to become lawyer

Hi, my name is Nancy A. I was born in 1994. When my parents died, another family began taking care of me. They treated me like a slave instead of like others in the family. I had to do many, many chores each day. I finally ran away to stay with my grandmother. She is old, but together we care 5 other orphans living with us in a small western Kenya village.

Sometimes I am able to help in the vegetable garden at a nearby orphanage. I like learning how to grow food and sometimes I am able to take some vegetables home to cook. I hope to plant a vegetable garden at home soon with seeds saved from the orphanage garden that Hope In Action helped expand.

I was in secondary school, form 1, but it has been difficult. The school did not permit me to take exams because I was not able to pay the school fees and book expenses. Recently, the school stopped me from attending classes until the fees are paid. I have been able to pay a few shillings for fees sometimes, but my going to class for lessons is on and off because of the school fees. I am very frustrated because I dream of becoming a lawyer.

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.

Kenya orphan grows vegetables to help pay for school

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.
