Antony joined the program on the 21st of August, 2009. He comes from a humble background but this has however not deterred him from succeeding academically. He joined the program and was immediately enrolled in Jagiet Academy where he did his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCPE) examination and later, he joined Parklands Boys High school. Antony then pursued a Certificate course in Social Work and Community Development at East Africa Institute of Certified Studies (ICS). Since day one, Antony has always been determined with his studies and has always worked so hard. All through, he was performing very well. He has always pegged his life to be a success because he had the perfect weapon, which is education that the program was supporting. He is currently working towards that because he is yet to secure a job.
The organization has been with Antony all through and he has benefited a lot from programs such as medical aid, food aid, Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) training, summer camp, and education among others. He is determined to make a life of his own and possibly be able to transform that of his family too. He says that the home situation is not good but he wouldn’t want to live such a life. He wants a better one and acknowledges the saying that goes, “You can’t change your past, but can work on how your future will be.” This has been his driving force towards working to make things better. Antony is grateful for all that the program has done for him and sends a special gratitude to the sponsor for making things happen. He takes none of that for granted.
