Case Studies

Timothy

Timothy attended Loiyangalani Secondary School for four years with the help of sponsorship from a Trust supporter. In his final year there he was Head Boy.

During that time he also created a ‘garden’ in the very volcanic and barren landscape of Loiyangalani to grow food, but sadly this eventually failed due to severe droughts in the region.

He is now a soldier and says:

"Currently I am at rank of senior private, I will progress to the rank of corporal after six years in service.

"I am currently working at Gilgil 5 Kenya rifle an infantry unit as rifleman. Our job is to keep the territorial border peaceful. We spend most of our time at the bush away from our families and friends.

"I was happy to be managing one of the football teams at home of both boys and girls, it’s called Prostars Club."

Peter

Peter did not go to high school after his primary education as he opted to go for a technical course. He was sponsored by a Trust supporter through 2 years at the Don Bosco Technical School in Marsabit, to study masonry and carpentry.

He took his final exams successfully at St Joseph Youth Polytechnic in Isiolo and has since been earning a living by building houses at Elmolo market, 13 km away from Loiyangalani.

Christina

Christina was sponsored by a Trust supporter through secondary school at Loiyangalani Secondary starting in 2012. During that time she had some problems with her eyes so we funded some treatment for her so she could continue her education. After completing secondary school, she attended Marsabit EDCE (nursery) School on a part time programme while also teaching at the Full Gospel ECDE School. She then worked full time at that School until Marsabit County Government employed her to teach at Sarima ECDE School close to where the new wind farm is operating.
