To dear Laurie,

I thank for the strength you have given me, it really is something very amazing. I feel more motivated and willing to fight for my dreams, which is to be a medical doctor and to help people in my country, from children to adults and seniors who are experiencing extreme health problems. Especially in my province, where poverty index is high and the population is vulnerable to various diseases; and where the distance to health centers in rural areas is far and oftern left without medical assistance.
I wish a Happy, Successful 2016 for you !!
Thanks from the heart
How is your school year going? I have two sons, and one just graduated from college this year ... the other graduated 5 years ago. I am so happy that you are in school and would love to hear any news you want to share with me. Happy holidays! Laurie

    I come from a family of four, my two siblings, my mother and I. My father left for the countryside after he separated from my mother. This separation left us under the care of my mother. My mother is a hardworking woman and she has inspired me a lot. I owe everything I have achieved in this young life to her. She is my biggest source of hope. I joined the football team in school and I hope to help my school achieve its highest feat. I work hard in everything I do and I go for the most challenging of experiences to gain more exposure. My philosophy in life is to always strive for the highest attainable glory.

    I come from a big family. I have nine other siblings. We are all taken care of by my father who at this point is not working/unemployed. My older siblings have attended/still attend not-very-good schools. I was to follow suit until The School Fund came to my rescue. This is a "first" in my family. This is a common situation in Kibera. I am among the lucky few from financially disadvantaged families to get support from well-wishers.
