I am a teacher and Director of an Educational Centre at Kiminini, Kitale in Kenya. The Educational Centre provides Primary Education to children in Kiminini Division. Among the pupils are orphans and most vulnerable children from the poorest households in the area. We provide clothing, care, food, education and healthcare to these children. Apart from helping them at school, we do visit their homes to enhance home based care. We are also involved in eco-project, gardening, organic farming, child care, building, general maintenance among others.
