I like the courses they are offering. I thought it would be just Psychology, but then they included the rest and I am actually glad because I have always wanted to do a course on HIV/AIDS - especially because my mother died from it.

I cannot say much about my teachers yet, but I like my Entrepreneurship lecturer. He really knows how to engage and involve everyone in his lessons. My HIV/AIDS lecturer is great too. He really helped me catch up with the rest of the class because I joined in later than everyone else did.

I attended the Golf tournament and boxing event organized by KI and UNFCU. It was very motivational and the attendance was great - especially at the golf tournament

I am doing well, compared to the last month. Some of my resolutions are yet to come true so I am just hanging in there. Overall, I am very grateful and extremely happy that I am back in school. I had really been looking forward to that. I am looking forward to the next chapter ahead.

It was very nice seeing Dennis, Tim and Elizabeth as well as the KI staff and the rest of the people. It had been my first visit to Kibera and there was not much difference from where I grew up. I felt like I was walking down memory lane.

Thank you for that experience.

The courses have been good. We have already covered all units and now is revision as I prepare for the end of the semester examination, which will happen after two weeks.

The teachers have been very useful - both in class and outside. In terms of punctuality, standards are very high and they always guide students and facilitate understanding.

We are done with mid semester examination (CATS) and are now preparing for end of semester exams. The CATS were average and teachers provided supervision. The exams test whether one has understood the unit covered.

Unfortunately, I did not attend any community activity this month

I am fine and doing well. My life story currently is a worthy one. Regardless the difficulties I still take life positively. My moods and spirit have been low since receiving the bad news from the family that my grandfather is no more. He passed away on 4 February 2017. The news did affect me mentally since the old man was the only person I called a father in the plains. I would like to thank him for everything he has taught me. May his soul rest in peace.

I thank the words of God that always keep me moving during stressful times and when I am in a bad mood. I seek refuge in the words of God and try my best to be in good terms with everyone close to me. I work hard every day to keep my dreams alive. Overall, I am a happy man. I stay focused and feel appreciative for all the support I get from the Kilimanjaro Initiative and PDAid Foundation.
