Featured Student: Christopher Onyango

Growing up in the Nairobi region of Kenya, 19-year-old Christopher Onyango has not only struggled with the death of his father but also leaving school in order to support his family financially.

A class prefect at Olympic High School in charge of the school's keys, Christopher also supports his family of five sisters and three brothers. Christopher aspires to become a doctor some day in order to give back to his community. He sees the suffering within his community and the waste of human life that ends as a result of curable diseases. By helping young people, Christopher hopes to treat students in order for them to continue their educations.



Christopher writes more about his journey in education with an update to the Givology community.
