Meet Frederick

Eighteen-year-old Frederick lives with his impoverished grandmother. He’s now a senior at Mbarara High School in Kenya, thanks to our ministry partner, St. Francis Family Helper, who has helped put him through school for the last six years.

Frederick says he has learned from St. Francis about how to cooperate with different people, how to study properly, and how to make choices that protect himself against things such as alcohol, smoking, and HIV/AIDS. Frederick explained, “You must trust in the God of Jesus Christ who created you. A strong faith will keep you from being involved in worldly things.”

Frederick credits his strong faith to the help of St. Francis Family Helper, along with his school and his church. He gives credit for making it this far in his education to God.
