New student


Silvano is our newest young person to be sponsored by Future Foundations. Silvano is from Mjanaheri at Magarini /Malindi district in Kilifi county of Kenya, and his mum, Salama, had managed to pay for the first term of his first year at secondary school however could not pay the remainder of the fees. Salama, is a single mother of six children who never went to school herself. Despite this, she has made a small business for herself by making and selling items on the beaches to tourists and she has taught herself English and Italian. Although Salama has been able to make a living for herself, she told us that she does not want her children to struggle as she has, and she strongly believes education is essential! Future Foundations has helped Silvano get into a local secondary school which will mean any travel costs to go to school will be little as often its these extra costs that make education impossible. We are sure Silvano will have the same determination as his mum and hat there’s excited things ahead for him, thanks to our supporters for making this possible
