The young man pictured above is named Krop. He and his siblings previously lived in a village called Kadlingding with their parents, however after their mother passed away and the inability to tolerate their drunkard father, they moved to where their grandma lives. At times, their grandma would have to starve if there wasn’t enough food for both her kids and Krop’s family.
This trend carried on until the chief of the village Amos, notified his grandmother about IHF. Previously, his family and community did not see the importance of education, and therefore, dismissed it. However, after Krop’s persuasion, he was sent to school. There, he was sent to primary school without any preschool experience. However, he excelled in his classes. Throughout primary and secondary school he was in the top of his classes and as a result, got invitations to the best schools in his area.
Shooting Stars Foundation has been instrumental to his success in university as well. Now, he studies at Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology. With the help of IHF and Shooting Stars Foundation, he is flourishing.
