About

Jane is the first born child in a family of three. Her father deserted the family leaving the children under the care of their mother who works as a house help. Jane completed grade eight in 2016 and scored high marks. Her mother could not afford to take her to secondary school and instead wanted her to be employed as a house help. Jane defied her mother and with the help of her local pastor went back to school and repeated grade 8. In 2017 she emerged the best girl in her school and was admitted to a national school. Despite the many challenges, Jane is determined to excel in her studies. Her dream to become a surgeon remains her driving force. She hopes to help the less fortunate in the society who cannot afford medical care. Jane believes that hard work pays.

Hi Jane,

How are you. My name is Laura and I have been to Kenya twice to various schools in Wamuyu with Kenya Connect. Both times I have been deeply moved by the beautiful people in Kenya. That area in Kenya is so beautiful and I love the culture and the Kamba Tribe. I have beautiful wood carvings around my house in Maryland, USA from the world famous wood carvers. I have three kids and my oldest, Maggie came to visit Wamuyu in 2017 with me. She is currently in University at Penn State University and my son Liam has a little over a year to go and Lily has two years. Lily is adopted from China.

Tell me about your self, I look forward to hearing from you. All my best, Laura
