My name is Alfred, and I’m a 14-year-old boy who loves football and swimming. I live with my mom and two siblings. Since 2008, Ngong Road Children’s Foundation has become my second home. I’m in eighth grade at Statehouse Primary School, and my favorite subjects are maths and English. I also enjoy reading and my favorite book is ‘The Visitor’ by Dean Kootz.
Going to school means more than just attending classes. It is where I have made playful, kind, and loving friends. We share moments both on and off the football field, which has helped us build a special chemistry that makes them my best friends.
I have big dreams for the future. One of my biggest dreams is to represent my country in football. However, I also aspire to become an engineer. I think engineering is a great career because it offers job stability and satisfaction. It is also exciting to build things and work with electronics.
Ngong Road Children’s Foundation has been transformative for me. I especially have benefitted from using the Elimu Hub as it has equipped me with valuable knowledge and skills in the computer world, and this has enhanced my communication and IQ skills.
