Naivasha Street Children learn to succeed

‘Great news! ‘  Kristen Sayres of the Naivasha Children’s Shelter writes,

‘Six of our KCPE candidates (boys who completed class 7) have secured a place in secondary school! This is a huge achievement, and shows not only the dedication and talent of our boys, but also of the teachers, staff and donors who have invested in them throughout the years.

I’d like to introduce you to one of the boys, James. Kenyan Boy from Naivasha Children's Shelter, blue denim waste coat, yellow and blue football shirt, blue doorJames is 14, and has been at the shelter for three years, since he was left at a bus stop in Naivasha town. He did exceptionally well in his exam, and wants to be a neurosurgeon when he grows up. He also enjoys art, and recently drew a picture of a man with a book for a face (what he imagined when he heard the term “Facebook”).    He is very excited about attending high school, and says that he will study hard to realize his dreams.

We appreciate your continued support for these boys, and look forward to sharing more with you in the future. ‘

Kristen, thank you for sending this.

Good work, James (14). From streetchild to neurosurgeon, that is a tremendous ambition. Thank you, all you generous Romilly supporters for helping to give James this chance.
