Francis embodies courage and confidence and we are so excited to see the strides he is making. Always having a smile, and always ready to serve, the words “maisha ni kujituma” really stuck with us. He does not believe in waiting for opportunities to come his way, he goes out to take them. While waiting to join the Mt. Kenya University to study for a Bachelor in Economics & Finance degree, he has taken up a temporary job at a construction site. Even though the job isn’t easy, he does it with joy.
In addition to gaining skills, the income he gets helps him take care of his widowed mother and he truly is a blessing to those that interact with him. He has learnt valuable life lessons such as working hard to live the life one desires, how to work with others and how to tackle the challenges of life.
