"Before joining Umoja Centre, I was loitering around the street aimlessly. There was nothing that I had been doing rather than helping my Mum on a small small piece of land where she uses to plant maize and beans. I lost a hope of going back to school for higher learning. But things changed a lot when I joined Umoja Centre 2011. I enjoyed so much a course of English and computer when I was at Umoja. By now I am a student a Moringe High School under the sponsorship of Umoja Centre. I am really grateful about that chance!"
