Ramadhan Ong’era was born and raised in a small village in Kenya. His mother died when he was just two years old, and his father was never in the picture. Ramadhan was raised by his grandfather, who was a loving and caring man. However, Ramadhan’s grandfather was also poor and uneducated. He struggled to make ends meet, but he was determined to give Ramadhan the best possible life.
Ramadhan’s grandfather enrolled him in a local primary school, and Ramadhan quickly proved to be a bright and eager student. He loved to learn, and he excelled in all of his subjects. However, when Ramadhan was eight years old, his grandfather passed away. Ramadhan was devastated. He had lost the only person he had ever known as a father.
After his grandfather’s death, Ramadhan went to live with his grandmother. However, his grandmother was also poor and sickly. She was unable to provide Ramadhan with the basic necessities of life, let alone the support he needed to continue his education.
Ramadhan was determined not to let his circumstances stop him from pursuing his dreams. He continued to attend school, even though he was not certain about his next meal and what to wear.
One day, Ramadhan’s story reached the ears of the International Humanity Foundation (IHF). We were impressed by Ramadhan’s determination and resilience, and decided to help him.
IHF arranged for Ramadhan to move into Kenya Center, a safe and supportive environment where he can focus on his education and pursue his dreams. Ramadhan is now able to focus on his studies without having to worry about his next meal or his grandmother’s health. He is also surrounded by positive role models and supportive peers.
Ramadhan is grateful for the opportunity to live at Kenya Center. He says that it has given him a new lease on life. He is now determined to make the most of his opportunity and achieve his goal of becoming a doctor.
Ramadhan is friendly to workers, GLDs and the other children at the Center. Being the youngest, he has quickly earned the title “Junior” which he loves like his name.
He likes Science and Mathematics – two subjects that he has always excelled in his examinations.
You can help Ramadhan achieve his dreams by supporting IHF’s work. Any donation, no matter how small, will make a difference.
