Remember Ngeto from last year? He had defied his family’s wishes and decided at 10 years old to go to school, and was severely beaten as a result. When I met him, he was experiencing his first day of school in the Nursery class, and learning to write his very first letters.
He is now in Form 1, writing well and coming to school everyday. His teacher said he is very good in Maths and Kiswahili. He told me his favorite thing about school is simply being in a learning environment, and that he wants to go into politics one day.
