Jealan Achieng Onyango

8th Grade Graduates of 2022 April (Rodi)

After Jealan’s parents died, she lived near Ongine with her grandmother before she also passed.  Jealan (14) told us, “She had a small garden but most of her plants died due to poor soil.  She would sometimes work as a housekeeper to earn some money. Life was not easy and we could go without food for so long.” She has 3 siblings, Paulsen, Mitchele and Mark.

Director Michael learned about Jealan about 4 years ago and brought her to Achungo. She says, “From the first I knew that I would excel in my studies because Achungo is a well-performing school with a strong Christian background.  I hope to continue my studies at one of the universities in USA. I want to become a neurosurgeon after schooling. I have a dream of helping the vulnerable and saving people’s lives. I also want to be a successful person in life. May God shower Achungo with abundant blessings, Thanks to you!”

Jealan enjoys studying and playing netball during leisure time.
