Enock Kirop’s dream is to become a journalist and he has already impressed several Kenyan news agencies with his talents. He is also passionate about working with computers and is very handy to have on our GEF team. We are proud to not only have supported him through secondary school but to also have Enock as a big part of our team producing videos and taking pictures at various G.E.F. activities in Kenya.
Myles and Dan first met Enock in 2011 on their first trip to Kenya. His mum was working very hard to provide for his school fees but didn’t always manage. Enock stands out from the crowd with his abilities and friendly personality.
Enock’s favourite foods are chapati, mushroom soup and pancake mikado (pancakes, ice cream and chocolate sauce). He successfully completed St Peters Iten Mixed Day School and has started to study journalism at College in Eldoret in 2017. In February 2017 he travelled on an aeroplane for the first time in his life to give a very inspirational speech at our fundraising dinner. While in the UK he also had the special opportunity to join the BBC team for 1 week work experience.
Enock (like Myles) is renowned for his unfunny jokes, as can be seen by his favourite below:
“Why did the elephant bring toilet paper to the party? Because it was a party pooper.”
Enock’s future is a lot brighter thanks to the many people who support GEF. Unfortunately there are lots more kids just like Enock whom we have still to find a sponsor for. For more information on how you can make a real difference and sponsor a child, please click here.
