Blessing is an eight-year-old charming young girl. She lives with her aunt in Kabiria, a village in the Dagoretti constituency. She has an elder brother, Sean, who lives with another relative. Her mother passed away in 2021 and she has been staying with her aunt since then.
A bright student, she has big aspirations for her future academic life and career. The only thing hindering her success is getting a quality education. Blessing would like to be an educator and she particularly wants to teach literature and Swahili so it is not a surprise that languages are her favorite subjects. She also loves modeling as well as fashion and design and she would like to one day own her clothing line and design beautiful dresses for women and young girls. She is optimistic that her hard work and resilience will definitely bear fruit and that her life will be better.
Blessing currently studies at Jagiet Academy, which is one of our focus schools. If she joins the program she will continue in the same school. She promises to continue with the good performance that she always has in school if she gets the opportunity for sponsorship.
Ashbel is 9 years old and he lives with his parents and a one-and-a-half-year-old sister by the name of Ivana. Both his parents are casual laborers, so they work hand in hand to provide for their families.
Ashbel is currently schooling at Ndurarua Primary School but when he gets a sponsor and joins the program, he will join Jagiet Academy, one of our focus schools. As can be seen from the latest school results, Ashbel is a bright student. His favorite subjects are mathematics and English. He enjoys watching animation shows on television during his leisure time at home. While in school, he loves playing ball games with his friends. He desires to be a pilot and not just a pilot, but the most outstanding pilot in the world after he successfully completes his studies. He loves nature and traveling and being a pilot will enable him to have both experiences while doing what he loves.
Ashbel would benefit from quality education in the program and work towards fulfilling his dreams. He is a promising young man and education will be a great way to empower him and push him toward a successful future.
