About this Sponsorship

Dickens Ochieng was born on January 21st, 2014. He joined Grade Two class in 2023. He previously attended a public primary school far away from his home. He has both parents; however, the mother ran away leaving him under the care of his sick father. His older stepbrother took him in following the mother’s neglect and the father’s illness. Dickens has three other older siblings under the custody of the stepbrother. They live in a mud-wall house with a tin roof about an hour’s walk from Christ’s Gift Academy. They use paraffin for lighting and fetch water from the lake for washing and bathing and treat the same water for drinking. Dickens sleeps on a mat spread on the floor. The father is grateful to CGA for giving Dickens an opportunity to learn.
