Meet Solomon

In the Maasai culture, when parents pass on, children are left to be raised by the entire community. The whole community is family and children grow up under the instructions of the older Morans (clan guards). In most cases, boys end up becoming Morans too, or cattle herders. It seemed Solomon was destined to be a Moran, until he was rescued and placed in a children’s home to continue his schooling.

Since being exposed to modern life beyond his traditional beliefs, Solomon is determined to create a life for himself. He rarely visits his village, as he prefers to stay at the children’s home. He is motivated to make up for the time he lost in school when he was younger.

Solomon is very engaged in sports. He participates in his school’s volleyball competitions, and also enjoys football, though he says he likes watching the English Premier League more than actually playing. He and his friends never miss a game when it comes on, and they are also big fans of the Arsenal team.

He is a very responsible young man, and is a big help to the director of the children’s home where he lives. His duties include cleaning the compound, washing clothing, and, during celebrations at the center, he helps with the cooking – especially meat dishes, as these are his speciality.

He needs help to join secondary school next year in order to achieve his goal of joining the military eventually. Help Solomon through four years of secondary school to make his dreams a reality. Sponsor him today!
