CASE HISTORY OF SUSAN OMWANSA
Told by Grace Fay

She had been out of school for six years looking for someone to pay for her to do teaching course. The centre provides accommodation and Kshs. 500 (£4) only per month. She cleans the centre, hands out books to children and she is there full time if anyone comes to read. Mostly she looks after the property of the centre.

Written by Susan herself:

"I am Susan K. Omwansa, a Kenyan citizen and aged 23 years old. I hail from a humble and God fearing family.

"I sat for my Kenya primary education exams in the year 2000 and passed well and proceeded to secondary school. Since my parents were unable to pay me school fees, well wishers used to pay for me to continue with studies.

"In 2005 I sat for my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education. Though my learning conditions were poor, I managed to attain the mean grade of C-.

"My wish was to join a primary teaching training college, but I didn't join due poverty. Since then I have been handling the lower primary pupils in various private schools. I am waiting for well wishers to sponsor me for further studies.

"While in Nairobi, I found E.K.O centre where Grace Fay wanted someone to voluntarily help to look after the centre. That is where I am at the moment while waiting for well wishers. All in all I hope for the best."


SCHOOL FEES PROGRAM

E.K.O has a school fees program that sponsors several young people. Below are profiles of some of these young people.

CASE HISTORY OF DANIEL S.OMEMO
Told by Grace Fay

Daniel is a 29 years old untrained teacher doing a teacher training course. He is an orphan that E.K.O met in the slums and paid school fees for him. After high school, he found a sponsor from U.K.  who pays fees for his teaching course.

He attends Orthodox International college of Nairobi and he is doing his final year.

As told by Daniel himself:

"My name is Daniel Shisin Omemo. I was born in 1982 in Kakamega District, Western Province, a second born in our family.

"I started my education in Thika School for the blind. Later on I transferred to Kibos School for the blind in Kisumu. I realized I had no father at the age of eight and my mother died in the year 1994 and left three younger siblings.

"Because of this responsibility of having younger siblings, I could not complete my primary education as it was supposed. I did my Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (K.C.P.E) in 1998 whereby I was called to join Thika School for the blind.

"Our family was not able to pay my school fees and so I decided to look for well wishers who could help me with my education. In that process I got a well wisher by the name Mr. Remigious Onyango from Kenya Union of the Blind (K.U.B) who managed only to pay school fees for Form One and Form Two.

"I then dropped out of school in the year 2001 while in Form Two. This was the time things started to become hard for me in that there was no one to help. Our family was not able to make me continue with my secondary education simply because I was living with my maternal grandmother and my mother who was a widow and also poor.

"In the year 2003, I decided to come to Nairobi to live with my aunt who also could not afford to take me back to school.

"May I thank God for the far I have come from and the far I have reached because if it were not his mercy and love I could not have been where I am.

"Although I stayed out of school for seven years, I thank God sending to me a caring and understanding mother, Grace Fay of Educating Kenyan Orphan ( E.K.O) charity.

"The (E.K.O) charity through Grace Fay started to sponsor me towards my secondary education in the year 2007 whereby I started Form Three. I completed my secondary education in 2008 through E.K.O.

"I am now pursuing a certificate in Early Childhood Development and Education (E.C.D.E) which will take two years. I am in the second term of the first year.

"I take this opportunity to thank all who have contributed their money towards (E.K.O) charity so as to shape the lives of the abandoned persons like me. I hope and trust that through E.K.O charity, my life will not be the same again.

"I have been uplifted from ashes to the princes table despite my disability; it cannot hinder me from achieving my dream.

"May God bless E.K.O charity, and again may He bless those who have stood with it financially. More over may God bless Grace Fay for ensuring that the orphaned children in Kenya can achieve their dreams.  God bless you abundantly."
