Hello, I am Ian and I am 14 years old. I am attending class 5 at Ngong Township Primary School.
Before I met Joseph, I have been living on the streets for 3 years, I don’t have a family. At the beginning of 2018, Joseph was informed about a street boy in a hospital in Nairobi and went to pick me up. I am so glad he found me.
When I grow up I want to be a pilot and visit Australia. My favourite sport is football and my favourite food is ugali. Furthermore, I love gospel music and dogs.
Hello, I am David and I came to the Centre in December 2018. As I have four sisters, my mother couldn’t provide for me anymore, I have been living on the streets between Ngong and Nairobi for the last 3 years, being in and out of school.
Joseph rescued me and brought me to the Centre to settle. What I really like about Global Hope Centre is the love I get from my brothers and that I have time to play with friends. I am 15 years old and attend Class 5 at Ngong Township Primary School. One day, I want to be an airplane engineer and travel to Germany. My favourite animals are dogs. I like listening to bongo music and playing football and rugby.
Hey there, I am Williamson and I was born on 29th of August 2001. I left my home in February 2018 because I was not comfortable and undergoing punishments by my stepmother.
On the street, I had to risk my life every day to get food and clothes by stealing. Thankfully, I met a boy who was living in the Global Hope Centre and helped me to find my new home there. Since October 2018, I have a safe home, food, and education. I attend Class 8 at Oloolua Primary School at the moment. My favorite subjects are Science and English. In the future, I want to become a General Doctor. My favorite animals are cats and one of my biggest dreams is visiting the ocean someday.
Hey, my name is Alex, I am 12 years old and I am from Kiambu. I go to Class 1 at Ngong Township Primary School. I lived on the streets from 2014 until 2018, then I came to Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. I was found by a few Global Hope boys and a volunteer in a slum of Nairobi. While they were searching for another boy, I didn’t leave their side for 2 hours and was following them to the bus station where they decided to take me with them.
I am so glad I have the chance to live a better life now. When I grow up I want to be an Engineer for airplanes. My hobbies are playing football and listening to gospel music.
Hi, my name is Brian, I am 17 years old and I am from Embu. I am in class 8 at Kings and Queens Academy. I lived on the streets of Nairobi for 1.5 years before ending up in a children’s prison where Joseph rescued me from in July 2018. For me, the hardest thing about living on the streets was finding food and shelter. When I grow up I’d like to become an aviation engineer. I love living at Global Hope because we have our freedom still, we receive a lot of love from visitors and we always pray together.
Hey, I am Christopher and I am 16 years old. I was born in Nairobi on the 27th of March 2003. I lived on the street for 3 years. In 2016, I was introduced to Global Hope through a friend of Joseph but I ran away—luckily, I decided to come back in August 2018. I am in Class 8 at Ngong Township Primary School and I am so happy to be able to attend school. Lions are my favourite animals and my hobbies are basketball, dance, rap, and gymnastics. One day, I would like to visit Denmark, Russia, and Israel.
Hello, my name is Alvin, I am 16 years old and I was born in Ngong. Due to quarrels in my family, I had to leave my home and had to live on the streets for 4 year where no one cared for me and I was abused by the police. Then I met Joseph who gave me a new home at Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. My brother Wilson and his cousins Mustafa, Hassan and Amran followed me later. I am going to Class 8 at Kings & Queens Academy. In my future, I want to be an Architect.
Hello, I am Brian, I am 17 years and I was born in Ngong. Currently, I am attending Class 8 at Ngong Township Primary School. There was no food and many problems at home, that’s why I have been living on the street from 2015 – 2017 where I was struggling to find a place to sleep and begging for food. Thank God, I knew someone at Global Hope – my big brother Alvin was living in Global, that’s how I was introduced. I love about Global Hope that the volunteers there try to provide everything we need for a living. My biggest career wish is to become a musician or artist.
Hey, my name is John, I am 17 years old and I was born in Laikipia. I was living on the streets for 1 year and 2 months. I was in a bad shape, had no food, no peace, and no love. Thank God, Joseph found me, helped me to go back to school and brought me to Global Hope in August 2017. I feel so lucky to be able to live at Global Hope because I have enough food, education, and opportunities. I am going to Class 8 at Ngong Township Primary School. In my future, I want to become a farmer.
Hi, I am Moses and I am 17 years old. I was born in Machakos and have one brother. I was forced onto the streets when I was 13, where I lived for 2 years. The hardest part of life on the streets was finding enough food to stay alive. I met Joseph when he rescued me from the streets and gave me a new home at the Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. My favourite thing about living at Global Hope is that I get food every day. I recently completed my KCPE at Ngong Township and am excited to start Secondary School next year. When I grow up, I would like to be a DJ.
