"My name is BRIAN. I am 12 years old and from Eldoret, Kenya. I like going to school because I like reading. When I grow up, I would like to be a teacher."
Age: 12 (June 2015)
Cost: $436 /yr ($36.33 /mo)
for tuition, boarding, and food
Situation: Brian’s mother got married to a man who was not Brian’s father; this man did not want to accept Brian as his own and refuses to recognize Brian as part of his family. They left Brian with his grandmother, who now provides for Brian. However, she could not afford to pay for his education. Brian’s grandmother is all alone, because her husband died of cancer in 2005, and she has 7 kids of her own, most of who are married, but without jobs. They live on inherited land from Brian’s great grandfather and farm on those 3 acres of land. Brian would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
