Location: Kenya Rift Valley Nakuru
Age: 15 years old
My name is Lilian Cheyech Akortepa. I am fifteen years old and in form two and also I am happy
to be in IHF center. I learn in Langalanga secondary school. For my dreams I wish and would
like to be a journalist, lawyer or teacher. In my studies I am working very smart and hard to
achieve my dreams. Here in IHF center I am also doing well, we do activities like playing football
and having fun listening to music every Saturday during the day. I also like planting trees when I
have the chance.
I am a pokot girl and we had challenges because the climate was very hot of our livestock dying
due to hunger, there was also a scarcity of food that one can stay one day without getting any
meal to eat. When it was time for winter it would flood preventing people from reaching their
homes and vehicles I am really happy to be in IHF because it provides us with school and
After IHF I would like to achieve my dream and change my life, my parentsâ€™ and my sistersâ€™ who
are still in Pokot and also take to school my younger brother. I will not forget the center, I will
help the needy people in our society and street children in different towns and countries.
