Due to the lasting impact of COVID-19, we have had a few sponsors who are no longer able to continue supporting their students’ education, in addition to the 200+ students on our waiting list. One of these students hoping for a new sponsor is Owen.
Owen joined our program in 2018, and is 12 years old. Owen attends Jagiet Academy boarding school and is working hard to get good grades. His best subject is English. When he grows up he wants to be an engineer. In his free time, he loves playing soccer, doing taekwondo, and dancing. He enjoys the company of others and has many friends. His favorite meal is fish and ugali (a Kenyan staple made of cornmeal).
Owen’s parents work as street vendors, but don’t make enough money to support their family. They live in a two-room house made of iron sheets and wood. The house is connected to electricity, but they don’t have running water. The house is so small that Owen has to share a bed at night with all of his siblings.
Owen is looking forward to getting another sponsor who will help him be successful in school. Many of our sponsors choose to support multiple students! Please consider sponsoring Owen or another waiting student.
