“It’s after losing my beloved parents that I found myself living in the streets. Life was difficult there because we were marauding in order to get a piece of bread for the day. I came to St. Francis in 2003 to begin school life. Many at St. Francis gave us words of encouragement and taught us the importance of education.”

 
 

"My name is Naserian and I come from Marsabit county in northern Kenya. Before I came to Nchiru Children’s Village, my job as a young girl was to look after my uncle’s camels. I spent my days with the camels and finding firewood for cooking. I did not eat the whole day until I returned home in the evening with the firewood and camels. "
