Barack Achieng (Grade: 4)
Barack is eleven and is at a delicate age where the pressures of poverty will force him to darker places of survival. His mother has fled and is insane. His father is dead. He lives with another mother who is caring for both families, amounting to eight children. She is a peasant farmer and cannot sustain this pressure. Barack’s spoken English is exceptional. He is a very bright boy, but if someone does not step in to help him now, he will forfeit any education and be forced to work, at eleven years old. We are targeting both he and his sister Ephy to be admitted into the Joy School.
