My name is Britney, and I had the privilege of joining Ngong Road Children’s Foundation this year. Currently, I’m a student at Jagiet Primary which is one of the program’s focus schools, and I’m in the fifth grade. I find joy in the little things in life, like singing, drawing, and dancing, which fill my days with vibrancy and passion and this is why I joined the dance club. This year has been my best year yet, all thanks to the NRCF program. I am getting quality education, making new friends, and learning new things both academically and socially.
I aspire to become a teacher and share my love and compassion with others. Being a friendly person at heart, I believe teaching is the perfect path for me. In addition to teaching, I yearn to pursue professional dancing as a means of self-expression and physical exercise. But my dreams don’t stop there; I aim to build a beautiful home for my parents and offer them support for their financial needs. Through my hard work, I hope to make these dreams a reality and create a brighter future for my family and myself.
My favorite program at NRCF is the Saturday program. On Saturdays, I get to meet all my friends and we sit down to share the Saturday program meal as we tell stories of how our week has been. This is also the day when I get to dance with my fellow dance group members and now Saturday has become my favorite day of the week. I also love the Elimu Hub, which is a resource center. I especially love the Computer lab where I use the computers for learning and practicing basic computer skills like typing and I also write to my sponsor at the computer lab. I also like to visit the Library when I want to read a storybook or when I need to get learning materials.
I am grateful to the NRCF program for giving me the opportunity to join the program. I am now getting quality education without any interruption and my dreams are now looking more hopeful and achievable.
