"My name is MESHACK. I am 7 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 driver of my own car."
Age: 7 (September 2010)
Cost: $436 /yr ($36.33 /mo)
for tuition, boarding, and food
Situation: Meshack’s mother is without a job and works odd jobs to make money. She has 5 children with Meshack
being the youngest. All of Meshack’s older siblings dropped out of school after the 8th grade, because the family could not afford to pay for further education. Meshack’s oldest sister already has two children of
her own. They live in a one bedroom home, which was given to them by a good Samaritan after he saw how the family was struggling to even get food. Meshack would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
