Joshua is in his third year at Achungo and wants to be like Michael Nyangi, the orphanage-school’s founder and director.
Like Michael, Joshua is patient, honest, disciplined, humble and a leader in his role as the class 8 prefect. He plans to go to secondary school and on to university.
He even shares Michael’s philanthropic aspirations. “After university I want to raise money to build an orphanage in my former village,” Joshua says. But he wants it to have a secondary school—boarding, of course, as is customary in Kenya. “I’ve been praying about this since coming here.”
Joshua attends Ratanga Boys Secondary School.
