In their own words these are the voices of five children from our  programme speaking about what difference it has made for them.

roseRose Imoni, 6 years

“Before I was enrolled in KCC school during each day I used to look after our baby and my younger brothers and sisters. I also used to wash the kitchen utensils, sweep the floor and do the washing. After coming to school I have learnt a lot about listening to others and obeying my teacher. I appreciate that I can come to school now and make new friends.”

Patrick Echom, 6 years

“My family is big, there are eight of us kids so I was so happy when I was enrolled into KCC school. In my days before coming to school, I used to work on our farm, watering all the plants and helping mum at the house. When I walk to school with my friends, Brian, Paul and James, I feel so proud wearing my uniform. At school I love reading, praying, talking to my teacher and meeting the visitors that come to see us.”

“I feel good and proud when I’m coming to school. Before being enrolled here, in the days I used to wash all the kitchen utensils, sweep the floors and clean our house. I love school and my three best friends are Mercy, Janet and Irene. Since coming to KCC school I’ve become cleaner, grown taller and I’ve started to learn English.”



danielDaniel Eaitaae, 6 years

“When I used to be at home all day I would help my mum by taking care of my younger brothers and sisters, fetching water from the river and digging on the farm. Now I can see a difference between staying at home and coming to school. At home I have a lot of responsibilities and at school I get to learn to read and write. When I was sick I was taken to hospital straight away and got better. I’m very happy to be in school.”

“My best friends at school are Lucy, Irene and Stacey. Before coming to KCC school I used to help my mum at home all day by sweeping the floors and washing the utensils and clothes. I love my uniform and it makes me feel proud about coming to school. I have learnt to read and I enjoy writing and lunch time makes me happy too! ”
