,My name is Abraham gitahi and please let me indulge you for a few minutes.....I met this lady called Beth or teacher Beth as she was lovingly called through my mom.My mom had been trying to get me to meet her but due to schedules it did take two years.....beth came from a not well to do family n through so many struggles, she put her self through high school.Beth had a passion in her heart n that was to give kids from less fortunate families a fair start in life through education so that they could better themselves n their family lives.....Beth started the school with nothing but faith n an ever burning fire in her heart for her kids.....when I met beth on Valentine's day this year,she was taking care of 58 kids....these are total n partial orphans or from less fortunate families who just can't afford to make ends meet....we talked about the kids,her passion and her clear vision. The vision to offer quality education to these less fortunate kids so they might be an influence to others and a light in the community.
This tugged at my heart strings because it’s something that had been in my heart for so long and I promised to help with anything I could. Sadly, Beth passed 3 days after our meeting. To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement. Beth left a legacy through the 58 kids she was taking care of. As I write this, the home is being led by Beth's sister who took up the torch and is taking care of those kids basically through well-wishers. I’ve been helping with the little I can when I can. These kids deserve a chance at life through education. Beth’s dream for her kids has become my passion too.
The kids need a place of their own. Currently, they are learning in a building that is falling apart. There is a struggle to pay for rent, basics such as books, desks, teachers and sanitation. I would like to buy a piece of land where I can build a school. They only have preschool classes and my fear is if I can't build the school and the kids get past the preschool stage, they will be forced to stay at home because they can't afford to go to another school and all the effort teacher Beth dedicated to these kids will have been in vain.
The school is called Beth Victors, after Beth and as she viewed these kids as victors. Nothing is too small and anything will go a long way.
