John has been sponsored by Leonie Jung from Germany. Leonie, thank you so much for enabling John to have an education!
Birthday: 22nd of July 2014
John is six years old and lives with his mother and little sister in the Soweto slums in Kahawa, Nairobi. His mother is washing cloth for work and does everything to support her family properly. His mother was only nineteen when she gave birth to John. The father was a one night stand and never got back with the mother.
Once grown up, John would like to be a farmer and drive a tractor. He loves being in the fresh air and watching the farmers at work next to his home.
In his free time, he likes washing dishes, cleaning the house, and preferably playing with his little sister. She is his best friend and no sheet of paper fits between the two. His favourite colour is red and he would like to go to school to finally learn to read.
