Situation: Amon’s parents, Stelle Chepleting and Daniel Kimutai, have two children, Amon and his younger brother, William Kipruto (11 months old). Amon’s father is mentally ill and has been admitted into a mental health facility in Eldoret twice since 2014. He is now on medication. Amon’s mother, Stelle, does casual jobs to provide for the family. They live on 0.3 acres given to them by Daniel’s father, Shadrack Kosgei, who also helps to provide for them. Stelle dropped out of class 8 due to lack of school fees and Daniel also dropped out of class 8. Amon would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
