"My name is DILLEN. I am 12 years old and from Eldoret, Kenya. I like going to school because we learn good things that will help us in the future. When I grow up, I would like to be an engineer."
Age: 12 (May 10, 2005)
Cost: $445 /yr ($37.08 /mo)

Situation: Dillen’s mother, Caroline, is a single mother of one. She works at an mpesa shop where she earns $70 a
month (7000 Ksh). Dillen’s parents are separated; his father is no longer taking any responsibility in regard to Dillen and is not helping with school fees. Dillen and his mother live in a studio apartment
close to Eldoret, which they rent. Dillen has been going to school at St. Jacob’s, but was about to drop out this upcoming year because of school fees. Dillen would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
