Introducing myself and my journal: CAHED PROGRAM

My name is Rael Achieng
I was raised in Homa-Bay with my 5 siblings and lost my parents while i was in form two.
Life was not easy for me and i was forced to be responsible at a very early age.
At 16yrs old i could cook & help m my younger brothers by feeding them & going to fetch water on my back several miles away.
As i grew up in a humble family as a little girl, now a grown lady at 24 yrs with two children MITCHEL and CLINT and Married to a lovely husband who has been helpful having also grew up as an orphan and do the same interest and he is the Program Director in our Organization i have seen & witnessed women & children struggle for basic needs.
I was lucky my late dad put me through primary & secondary school where i excelled and i loved school so much and wanted to go to college and get my degree just like it is a dream for most girls in my village.
Unfortunately my dream didn't come true.i got married off at the age of 19yrs immediately after secondary school after attaining C+ and now concentrate in helping others and raising a family , this has prompt me and my husband to start an institution to help the vulnerable children and persons in our community. I am blessed with 2 children and taking care of them and also feeding other vulnerable children with whatever God could help us with.
Back in my mind i always knew i could do better for myself and my community.I have a special passion for children & helping others.I want children to have the best.
In pursuit for a better life for my family & community , I still wish that one day if God willing i will pursue my education to the fullest and come back to give my community.
It is this kind of opportunity that i want to give the women and children of Homa-Bay by giving them a chance to have quality education & health care.
It is my dream to build a school for special needs children who are usually hidden and regarded as a curse.It is my dream & goal to build schools for children /girl child and keep them enrolled, educate women about their basic constitutional rights, educate the community about the importance of education, build a women & children’s hospital in my community & bring clean water to my village.I want other women to be as fortunate.That is why i am compelling to work to the vulnerable members of our community and do service above self and help women & children of Homa-Bay slums to speak out and be heard.
Am hoping you will help me do that as i enter into this organization to support the women initiatives.
Thanks and wish everybody the best of luck this festive.

Thanks

I love your comments and thank for your encouragement , i think this is a good platform for young women to break out from the chain of Kitchen thinking and focus on the global development and policy changes that strengthen the women participation in all sector of empowerment and development.

When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.

Great Thanks

I wish all friends in pulse wire a great journey to prosperous new year.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:14-15
