Kennedy is 14 and joined Achungo in 2014 for 4th grade coming from Nyagetha Primary. He told us the school had poor performance and no permanent classrooms, just buildings of metal sheeting. He said, “At Achungo the performance is good, there are permanent buildings, and the teaching is better.” His favorite classes are Math and Science. He wants “to become a pilot and make lots of money.”
He lives with his aunt and uncle in Ndiwa (about 15 kilometers away) and never knew his mother or father. He enjoys reading storybooks, playing football with his best friend, Caleb Otieno, and on Sundays, attends the chapel at Achungo.
