Kamungo is 8 years old and in second grade. He has reason to smile. Two years ago he was found wandering the streets, hungry and dirty. Today he’s attending one of the best schools in that area of Kenya — Freinademetz Primary School, one of our partners. Kamungo and three of his cousins live together in a stifling-hot one-room house with their elderly grandmother. She is hard of hearing and requires two sticks to walk on crippled legs. “Kamungo benefits most from the food at school,” she said. “Now he gets lunch. He didn’t here at home.”
Kamungo has come a long way since they first pulled him off the streets and enrolled him in school, and his future is much brighter, too. His grandmother told us, “I told my grandchildren they have to study for a better life. We depend on God for everything and God brought you to us.”
Kamungo’future looks much brighter now that he’s going to school.
