2020 Form One Intakes


Quinter was born on 14th January, 2004. She is the firstborn in a family of three. Her siblings; Sharon and Shantel are both in pre-school despite both being at the age of 5 and 7 years respectively.

Quinter lives with her mother and siblings in a rented room within Naivasha. The father abandoned them about 3 years ago. Quinter’s mother is sickly; she can barely walk by herself. She has developed an eye condition which makes her sight blurred. This means that the mother does not do anything by herself and, therefore, cannot afford to put a meal on the table for her kids. This family lives under the mercy of well-wishers.


John was born on 16th April 2005. He is the firstborn in a family of four. Two of his siblings; Henry and Ruth are in grade 3 and 5 respectively. The lastborn, Brian is in pre-primary 2.

Njeri lives with her mother and siblings within Naivasha in a rented room. The father passed on in 2017 and left the family under the care of the mother. The mother depends on menial jobs to cater to the needs of the family. When the husband died, the mother was denied access to her husband’s home.


Peter was born in 2005. He is the fifth born in a family of 11. His siblings are in different stages of life. The four older siblings never attended high school. They have since moved from the home in search of casual jobs. The firstborn is 22 years old whereas the last born (11th) is 2 years old. All the kids are of the same mother and father. Peter attended Ithagani Primary School from where he sat for Kenya Certificate of Primary School (KCPE) and attained 348 marks out of the possible 500.

Zipporah’s is a total orphan. Her mother passed on in 2012. The father is not known. She lives with her aunt in a rented room within Naivasha who is actually the wife of her late mother’s brother. The aunt took her in when her mother passed on. The aunt’s husband abandoned then a year ago after stealing Kes.60,000 which the aunt had been loaned for building a house at home. The aunt is a casual labourer at a flower farm. The time I visited their house, Zipporah had gone to take care of her ailing grandmother. I will post her photo once she gets reports at STG.
