SHADRACK WAMALWA POTEL
Meet 14 year old Shadrack, who was born and lives in Kibera slums. Life in the slums has been very difficult and challenging for Shadrack and his family. There are many times that the family will go without food and other basic needs in their small rented house. Shadrack is the first born in his family so his siblings are looking up to him as a role model. Shadrack performs very well despite immense challenges that he faces at home and in school. He goes without food, and sometimes lacks the monthly fees payable to the school but he is trying very hard to cope with all these challenges and views them as an opportunity make him stronger. We want to help Shadrack enter into high school and rebuild the hope within his family that has been lost.
