Happy Gardens Community Organization School
|Bio and Background||
I am Lydia Awuor Onyango and I am 34 years old.
I did not have any one to take to school. When i was 12 years i decided to take myself and my sister to school.
It was not easy going to school without a pencil, a book and even a bag. It became a struggle all through my primary education.
When I finished my primary education, the well wishers got in and helped me through my secondary school.
This really touched my heart and made me have a dream to one day start a nonprofit school to support orphans, disadvantaged and less fortunate in my community.
I am happy today to be the co- founder of Happy Gardens community organization school which supports such children just as I was.
|Why I am a Force for Health® Member...||
I am humbled that FORCE FOR HEALTH is offering public health education campaign at such scale.
I am a Force for Health® Senior Ambassador, representing Kenya.
I shall continue to do so. I will extend to those undeserved communities, who are willing to save others.
I’m joining to advocate and advance this Golden campaign to my communities to learn and understand about their health to save my community population!
In advance I’m promoting Force for Health® activities with others such as leaders from the education, politics, and religion, as well as the school teachers, to promote the growth of health and learning.
We will focus our teaching on creating self sustaining efforts to produce even more vibrant communities of health for all of the families here, in Kenya, starting with Nairobi.
Through FFH I have been highly motivated and inspired to continue with my mission of the need in my community.
I now have full potential to move forward and help the Force for Health® accomplish their mission.
P.O.BOX 13334 Nairobi, Kenya.
|What would you like people to know about your community?||
As much as I know, Kenya has reached a stage where only the rich attains quality education even if the government started up the free primary education . I am referring here to the quality education, not just education syllabuses in most of government and cheap schools in Kenya.
A poor Kenyan child barely goes to school. For the few that have the chance to go, they still faced several challenges that even forced some of them to drop out.
What a weary time it is for poor children in Kenya, who have the desire and need to go to school, but not the ability. We really need to pick them up and support their education, or else, in their later days, they are innocently going to face the consequences of illiteracy because of the lack of their education.
I also want my community women to know that we can prevent cancer by having pap smear done after every two years in order to be cancer free.
I want my community to know that we can find durable solutions for quality education and cancer prevention for our community and county as a whole.
