Naserian's Story


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. Girls from my village don’t really attend school, and it is common for girls to be married off at a very young age.

At the time I was enrolled to Nchiru Children’s Village, I had a clear picture in my mind that I will be a great girl. I became very sharp especially when were taught farming. We grow good fruits like mangoes, oranges, bananas, and avocados. We also rear domestic animals for food, such as pigs, fish, and chicken for both meat and eggs. The moringa has really played an important role in fighting a variety of diseases among our students.
