Rift Valley Narok Central
Valentine is currently in 2nd grade, and her favorite subject in school is English. Valentine came to live at The Hope Centre last year, in June of 2018. She is from the Massai tribe and was rescued from early marriage and FGM (female genital mutilation). This deplorable act is a common practice among her tribe, but praise God that she has a home at The Hope Centre! Over this past year, she has been thriving and growing in beautiful ways. She seems to have adjusted to life in this new village well, and her future looks bright. Her English is getting better week by week! During the school holidays, when Kenyan government requires all children who have been orphaned to return back to their relatives’ home, Valentine goes to stay with her grandmother. On those days where she is not in school, she helps her grandmother with various household duties such as fetching water from the nearby river and helping to wash the cooking utensils. Valentine loves to sing and dance and play outside with her friends - she is friendly and so much fun.
