John (born January 30, 2009) told us, “I came to Achungo seven years ago after my father learned about it from the school headteacher. It is known as the best school ever in Homa Bay County. I attended St. Mary’s Academy in Oyugis, but It had few teachers unlike Achungo. At Achungo I was surprised at the results of the first exam. It was much better than the performance at my former school.
I live with my mother and do not have any brothers or sisters. My father passed away some 2 years back. We don’t have any garden for food but my parents have tried to find work in different places but. They have been very helpful to me in my studies.
Besides my studies I like to ride bicycles and play soccer. When I’m home I help my mother with household duties and play with my friends and review our studies together. I want to become an accountant after finishing my education. That way I would be able to deal with the corruption that is spiking in Kenya. I want to be an accountant because it earns a lot of money which may assist me in my plans.
The best thing about Achungo is that it has helped me learn how to use computers. And I have learned how to plan my work because of the good teaching of our teachers. Thank you.
