George Muga Odhiambo has been a beneficiary of the program since starting school in 2007. He feels he was lucky to receive the greatest gift of his life through the generous sponsorship since he was orphaned and was struggling with fees. Bob and Louise Tritt were his sponsors all through his academic training.
After joining the programme, his life took a positive turn as he immediately joined Holy Eden Primary School. Later, he transferred to G.S.U. Primary School where he sat for his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and attained grade B.
He was soon admitted to Parklands Boys High School, one of the best provincial schools in Kenya. As a young man, there was always the challenge of succumbing to peer pressure but he overcame all that to become a school prefect and he successfully graduated in 2013.
In 2014, George joined Mount Kenya University for his post-secondary education to pursue a diploma in Community Development. He made this choice as a way of giving back to the community that nurtured him.
George knew he wanted to impact other people’s lives and make a difference in society. Life in the university taught him to make wise decisions keeping in mind the welfare of others. He is glad that he has acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to enter the corporate world, something he always held close to his heart. George has successfully completed his diploma in community development and we are proud of his achievements so far.
He is now working at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation as a caseworker and he is happy in his new job. His goal in life is to improve other people’s lives and he believes that’s exactly what he is doing at NRCF.
