Steve Ouma, H-421
Steve is 12 years of age and in grade 3 going to grade 4 next year. He was admitted here early in 2018. He is a partial orphan left at the care of the sick mother with a big family of six children to look after, so most of the time has relied heavily on the assistance of some local church members for food.
Steve at early age started working menial jobs, attending other people's cattle, sometimes chasing birds away from a millet farm to get clothes to wear and food when the local church members’ food was not forth coming.
Steve counts himself lucky to have been admitted at Hope Center and his dream of completing school and becoming a mechanical engineer is valid. He is a bright boy in class and is thankful for the school, the meals and nice sleeping place.
