Each of the above children has a story. Grace Adhiambo is a 4 year old girl in Nursery. She is a partial orphan, stays with the mother and other younger siblings. Immaculate on the other hand is an 8 year old girl in class two. She is a total orphan who stays with her grandmother who is currently unwell. Finally Maurice is a 7 year old boy in class 2. He is also a total orphan who stays with the sister and other younger siblings.

When we meet these three they had several challenges such as, inability to afford medical bills, lack of proper and complete school uniforms, inability to pay the school charges and lack of finances to even have a meal back at their homes. These three children are just an example of the many students out there who face similar situations and seriously need help. As a team, we wouldn’t just leave them in this state so through the Child Sponsorship program we have been able to restore Hope to them.
