Agnes is one of the young adults benefiting from our education program in Molo. She is a senior at Kambala High School and, in November, will be sitting for her final exam to progress her to college next year.
Agnes joined our program when she was eight years old. Her father had died when she was young and her mother found it hard to provide for her young family of five. She was frustrated, hopeless, and turned to alcohol for an escape. Whenever Agnes would ask her mother for anything, her mother became very violent.
When we heard about their story, we reached out to Agnes’ Mother aned Agnes joined our program with her siblings who were still in school. With the constant love and support of her mentors in Kenya, and her sponsors in the states, God is writing a new narrative for Agnes. She never pictured life past primary school. But now she is looking with hope towards her future. Agnes is dedicated to her schooling, and recently asked to move in with a close relative with room for her to concentrate on her studies! We are proud of her decision to put her schoolwork first. Agnes is now dreaming of becoming one of the biggest fashion and design icons in the world. We love her big dreams!
Register to run with us on May 5th for the First Annual 5K and Safari Run in East Cobb, Georgia. All proceeds will benefit education and healthcare programs which allows students like Agnes to dream of a new future.
