TOSF Visits Kenya!
This is the view from the front of the house where our sponsored children live in Tamu. A gate in the distance (center) is the main entrance to the property.
Our Board member, Monica Odero-Winegar visits our supported children in Kenya every year to check on their health and living conditions (Monica is an RN). Shown here are pictures from her 2011 visit when we accepted two new children into the Tamu home - Opiyo and Odongo, who are twins.
Maurice Otieno was happy to announce that he will now be able “burn the midnight oil” while studying for his high school entrance exam. He currently attends Tamu Primary School where his favorite subject is math and his favorite sport is football (soccer). Update: he passed his exam and is now in Form 1 [equivalent to a high school freshman].
Ouma is transitioning to independence. He lives in Kisumu where he attends a trade school to learn auto mechanics. He visits the Tamu home a couple of times a week where he helps with farming activities.
Meanwhile, Susan Akinyi has grown quite tall and also studying hard for her high school entrance exam. She is often found awake at 4 am studying before she leaves for school. Update: she passed her exam and is now in Form 1 [equivalent to a high school freshman].
Nancy Achieng has grown into a mature young woman and is continuing with her course work to become a hairdresser and a beautician.
In 2013, TOSF began to support a family of orphaned children living in Kano, Kenya. We are gratified that our supporters have enabled us to expand our mission to include these deserving children. Thank you! From left to right, Nancy, Evans, Nicholas and Molly.
