Below is a testimony shared by one of our current college students who is getting her degree in hospitality management. We celebrate her success and give thanks to God for her journey!
"My name is Caren and I am now 21 years old. I was brought up in a Christian family by my auntie, and I am the third born in my family. God has been faithful to us, and He has been our provider, our sustainer, and our hope always.
I was privileged to get sponsorship from the Children of the Kingdom in 2016 when I started secondary school. Among the five children in our family, I’m the only one who got a chance to attend high school and college. I never take this precious opportunity for granted, and I always appreciate my sponsors Patrick and Angie. They have shown their love, care, moral support, prayers, and financial support, and they have ensured that my school fees have always been paid and that my academic life could be a success.
Being in Children of the Kingdom has allowed me to pursue my academic dreams without having to struggle to find school fees. It has given me an opportunity to grow socially, academically, and spiritually, and the program really has encouraged me to work hard in my studies and to serve God. For this, I am filled with joy and gratitude.
I completed my primary education at Benam Primary in Kitale and at Kanamkemer Primary in Turkana County. In 2016 I joined Salvation Army Nawoitorong Secondary School in Lodwar, and in 2021 I joined Amboseli Institute of Hospitality in Thika. I will complete a foundation diploma course in hospitality management this summer which will allow me to work in any institution, and then I will continue my studies for another 9 months before I graduate.
I have learned a lot of things in my courses, I have interacted with different people, and I have so experienced so many things. (See below for some of my creations!)
"I am so grateful for the encouragement of the Children of the Kingdom staff. In particular, Veronica has been my number one teacher in life. She has really inspired me and has shown me the essence of working hard in life. She is a role model to many young ladies in Children of the Kingdom.
My great appreciation goes to Children of the Kingdom for the incredible support through the years and for giving me an opportunity to pursue my dreams. May God bless you all."
