Happy Holidays from Naivasha Children's Shelter!
Our wish this Christmas: a high school education for Paul and Ken.
Last month, we shared with you about how well two of the Shelter boys recently did on their primary school exams. This month we learned that both of these boys were accepted into good high schools! Paul even did well enough to make it into a national school (a huge honor)!
Both of these boys come from very difficult backgrounds.
Paul was rescued by the Shelter in 2011 after he was found begging for food and not attending school. Paul's mother is disabled, and unable to walk or to use her hands. The family survives on the kindness of neighbors.
Ken was rescued by Shelter in 2010 when he was found wandering the streets alone in town after his father, a security guard, was killed on the job.
Both of these boys are a part of the Shelter family, and we are committed to giving them a bright future, with your help. We are trying to raise $1,700 to send both of these boys to boarding school next year.
Would you be willing to help gift these boys with the best Christmas present they could imagine--a chance at a good high school education?
Would you be willing to give generously to help give these boys the opportunity to attend high school?
This month, 16 boys are being reunited with their families.
Joram was referred to Naivasha Children’s Shelter by government after dropping out of school in 2016. Living on the streets, Joram was surviving by begging and doing casual labor. After being counseled by his uncle, Joram agreed to undertake a vocational course in carpentry at the Shelter. Now he has completed the carpentry course and national exam, and will be placed in a job in January.
Joram’s grandmother was happy to receive him and thanked the Shelter for reaching out to him and changing his life.
