Birthday: 24th of April 2006
Alex is twelve years old and lives in the Soweto Slums in Kahawa, Nairobi. At home Alex unfortunately never had an easy time, his mother became addicted to drugs early on and neglected Alex and his younger sister. At the age of 10, Alex decided to run away from home and live alone on the street. A man found Alex, who was very thin at the time, and took him home to his family. Since then, this family has been taking care of him and he can grow up with them sheltered. Unfortunately, his second family now lives in very poor conditions and cannot afford the school fees for Alex. To make matters worse, unfortunately, his mother has kept Alex's papers and hasn't reported for over two years. For this reason we try to get him new papers and have already found the right donor for Alex for the school fees.
Alex is a very lively boy and knows how to assert himself. He takes care of his siblings in the second family and he always tries to return the chance that his second family gives him.
Alex dreams of becoming a mechanical engineer and tweaking on with motorcycles.
