Stephen was referred to the KSF program by nurse Mama Kessy in 2008 as a full orphan under the care of his aunt and uncle in Kyura who have 6 other children. He has one brother who is not well. He wore frayed green school pants, his only pair, at our first meeting and presented as an avid and capable learner. Year after year he among the top of his class. By Jan 2010 he had completed to Form 4 and succeeded in passing on to Form 5, something only a small number of students succeed in doing. His goal after finishing form 6 is to proceed to college, to become a secondary school teacher and beyond he aspires to a degree in law. He is a radiant person.
