English below. Wie wil mij helpen.( Het geld wordt door mij rechtstreeks naar universiteit overgemaakt, niet naar een privé persoon.) Deze man heeft in Kenia al heel veel kinderen en vrouwen geholpen. Voornamelijk in de sloppenwijk Mathare. Nu hoop ik dat iemand hem kan helpen. Hij krijgt de mogelijkheid om een jaar opleiding te doen om leraar te worden. Hij leidt op dit moment een schooltje in de sloppenwijk waar kinderen les en eten krijgen. De leraren zijn, door gebrek aan geld niet opgeleid. Als deze man de opleiding kan volgen, kan hij daarna alle andere leraren trainen. En zo het onderwijs ter plaatse verbeteren. Bijgaand in zijn eigen woorden:
To Whom It May Concern,
SUPPORT TO TRAIN TO BE AN ICT TEACHER AND TEACHER OF OTHER TEACHERS IN KENYAN SLUMS.
My name is Benard Ochieng’ Nyachieo, I was born and raised in abject poverty in Rural Kenya. Immediately after my high school, I left rural Kenya to Nairobi, the capital city and ended up in a Nairobi slum. In a Nairobislum of Mathare Valley , I met poorer people and families than we were and from there resolved that I will live to help poor people with what I have . My passion is education as the only tool I believe we can use to make the world a better place, and over the years I have worked towards helping poor children in Mathare valley get education or learning support. I have taught, seek sponsorships, raise school supplies and mobilize resources for community based educational projects. After doing this for more than a decade I got an opportunity to get a university degree through work study program, university grant and scholarships and support of friends. Today, I am waiting for graduation in September having cleared a Bsc. Applied Computer Technology with a concentration in software Engineering. My goal is not only to teach ICT education in Kenyan Technical Colleges but to take it back to the slums and make a greater impact by teaching slum teachers how to teach and if possible empower slums through ICT learning opportunities or education among other projects that I will find important to empower slum people. I need to join Kenya Technical Trainers College located in Gigiri Kenya , next to the United Nations to do advanced Diploma in Technical Teacher Education as from next month, I need help with a total of Kenya shillings one hundred and twenty one thousand eight hundred (121,800) for the whole program which is charged KES 34000 for tuition , and KES 6600 for accommodation. It is my humble request to any person of good will to help me get this training to become a teacher to help me be a blessings to Kenyan students as an ICT teacher and my dream to teach slum teachers to become ICT teachers to slum children and more To support me financially - Kindly Contact me on whatsapp number : +254706835980 Or email : letsbe(dot)firstname.lastname@example.org for further information . Attached with this request are recommendations from area chief , community based projects , church, and university authorities , trying to say more about me. Thank you very kindly; Benard
