Wickliffe came to The Hope Centre is 2011 at age 8. He had been staying with his grandmother and his two older sisters who are both now married. Wickliffe’s Shosho (grandmother) had found it very difficult to care for three children — and so, after a visit from our manager and social worker, it was determined that Wickliffe should come to stay at The Hope Centre. He still goes back to visit his grandmother when on school holiday — and he even visits his older sisters and their families, though not as often — as they live quite far away. When staying with his grandmother, Wickliffe likes to help with the cattle and house chores like sweeping and cleaning. Wickliffe’s life is much different now since coming to stay at THC. He says that he has “plenty of food and a nice space for learning.” — Wickliffe’s best friends at THC are George, Evance, and Omondi. They all love to play football (soccer) together, and read. Wickliffe says that he loves attending the Wildwood Church across the road from THC because he “get[s] to hear the Word of God.” — Now at age 16, he is in Form 2 (sophomore year), and his best subjects at school are Geography and Agriculture. After Wickliffe finishes Form 4 (senior year), he hopes to attend Kenyatta University in Nairobi where he will study Agricultural Engineering and become an agricultural officer — to supervise how farmers are working on their crops and collect data about each farm in a particular county.
