My name is Kevin Kihika, I am 17 years old. I live with my uncle at Kibera slums.
My mother died when I was 5 years old and left me in the care of my maternal grandmother. She eventually passed away and because there was no one to take care of me, my uncle took me to his home in Kibera. Since then he has been taking care of me whilst working as a casual labourer.
I did not attend school, didn't have clothers to wear and spent days without food, but in 2006 Johari Foundation came to my rescue. The Foundation paid for my school fees and has been giving me food every month.
I have just joined a Technical School and I thank Johari Foundation for giving me hope and enabling me to pursue a course in electrical installation. After finishing this 2 years course I will have the skills to be able to gain employment and this will help me in assisting my siblings and relative. I know I have to work hard to achieve my dream!
Thank you to Johari Foundation and to David Sibbald for giving me support, inspiration and hope.
