Meet Peter

Peter is the only son to his single mother. He is a hardworking 13-year-old boy who managed to score a 317 on his KCPEs, a solid grade that granted him entry to Stephjoy Boy’s High School at the beginning of 2018. He was referred to us by three independent sources: his school board, the local administrative officer, and his church. He loves playing football and is part of his school’s football team. Together, they represented their school at the sub-county games earlier this year. In terms of his career goals, Peter aspires to join the Kenyan Defense Forces as a specialist to ensure peace and security in his nation.

Peter’s happy personality conceals the real challenges he faces at home. His mother, who struggles with mental health issues, can only tend their neighbor’s livestock for work. They live with Peter’s aging grandmother, who, at 76 years old, is not able to do much of the labor jobs that are in demand around their community. She fetches firewood for their neighbors; otherwise, the family relies on support from well-wishers in the area.

Peter is now in form 2 at Stephjoy Boys High and is steadily rising to the top of his class. He earned a solid B- average at the end of the final term of 2019, solidifying his position as an excellent student and hard worker. Thank you for helping this bright young man continue to get the education he deserves!
