Carol's Story

We would like to give you some exciting news about one of our students, Carol.

Carol is from Gachocho village in Muranga, Kenya. She has 2 brothers and is a partial orphan. Her father passed away when she was 10 years. Her mother is unemployed and depends on casual labor that she does in their neighbourhood.

Carol joined us 7 years ago, after her mother was unable to pay her school fees. She sat for the 2012 Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) and later joined Thika Institute of Business Studies,to do diploma in Food and Nutrition. After studying for an year, she did job training at Kibo Amboseli Lodge, a luxury lodge at Amboseli National Park. The manager was so pleased with her good conduct; hard work, confident and passion in her job that he volunteered to give her free job training after completing her course.

She was among top students in her year that graduated in September 2015. This was great news for us and big inspiration to all our students who always look upon her.

The Kibo Lodge Manger kept his promise, after her graduation, she joined the Kibo staff to start her job training. She is also hoping to get a permanent position with them soon.

More than wanting this girl to be educated we wanted her to be a nice person. To see that she has become both is just wonderful. We are so proud of her.

A big Thank You to all of you that made this happen, there is no better way than doing Sports to make a change in our community!
