Judith Atieno Oduur

Judy went to Kiembeni Baptist Primary School, then to Coast Girls High School, where she achieved B-. She then joined the polytechnic where she studied electrical wiring. She is now training with the Administration Police, which ensures security of employment . Judith is the first-born in her family of four. New Begin  We supported her from Form 1 then through polytechnic.

Now employed, Judy can support her mum and siblings. Her mum is HIV+ and her dad has died.

We are happy for her achievement.

Pinky Rahma Salim

Pinky is one of our success stories, though she still wants to pursue her course in Community Development, and New Begin seeks support to see her through her college part in Kenya Polytechnic.

Pinky got a mean grade C+ which is a great achievement given the environment is not conducive to her studying comfortably. She’s a hard worker, very sociable, and gets along well with anybody who comes her way.

 

David Karisa

David and Vanessa Kadzo are twins; their mum is a single mother who gave birth to her children at 14 years, so she is a young other who never went to school. Vanessa and David stay with their grandmother who has no job to support them well. The children are bright, Vanessa is a little shy while David is a bit of a bully, but very funny.
Both children are in KG3 supported by New Begin. Join us in supporting them.

Ramadhan Kokonya

Kokonya is in KG1 at Ananda Marga Academy. KG1 is foundation stage, and many children don’t get this chance as there are no free nursery schools in Kenya and many parents cannot afford to pay for nursery education.
Kokonya is very bright but shy, he does not like sitting around people but prefers to be alone.
Kokonya’s fees are 3,000 KES per term (about 65 GBP per year).

Sheila Mwenesi

Sheila is a very enthusiastic girl, and makes people laugh a lot when she is around, even though she is an orphan. She lives with her aunt (her father’s sister).
She is a hard-working girl, attending Bamburi Community High School, where she is in Form 2.
Sheila has 2 siblings in Class 4 and Class 8 at Kiembeni Primary School. Please touch her life and help her achieve her dreams.
Sheila’s fees are 21,600 KES per year (about GBP150 at current rates).

Noel Omondi

Noel went to Kiembeni Baptist Primary School and proceeded to Mtwapa Elite Academy.

It was not easy for New Begin to raise the sponsorship, but going shop-to-shop and also plaes such as Doshi Enterprises, Datoo Enterprises and other organisations that are doing similar work to support vulnerable children, we managed to see Noel through school.

Noel is very bright, very ambitious, and very hard working. He gained a mean grade of B- and wants to join DayStar University, but we don’t have the money to support him through this course. Maybe you will be touched to give him this opportunity?

Fees are of the order of 100,000 KES per semester.

Rosemary Nanjira

Rosemary Nanjira
Rosemary was at school in Bamburi Community High School. She is the first-born of the New Begin programme. Rosemary is the first-born from a family of 4. Her mum is a widow, New Begin began supporting Rosemary in Form 2, and followed her through to Form 4. We faced a big challenge when she was in the fourth form as we didn’t have the money to pa or her exams. We went from shop to shop, even the supermarkets, to raise the balance plus her exam money.

Thank God we managed to raise the money, she did her exam in 2011, successfully undertook a hotelier course and is now supporting her mum.

If you hold our hands to support, we will change the lives of many.
