GEF Staff Kenya Enock

Enock Kirop (Film & Photography, Iten)

We are proud to not only have supported Enock through secondary school and college but to also have him as a big part of our team in Iten. Enock’s role includes video creation and editing, photography and managing the production and shipping of our hand made Kenyan bracelets.

Myles and fellow GEF Trustee Dan Mulhare first met Enock and his mum Lydia during their first trip to Kenya in 2011. Lydia was working very hard as a roasted maize seller to provide for Enock’s school fees but didn’t always manage to raise the full amount. From their very first meeting, it was clear that Enock and his mum were wonderful people with determined spirit and positive outlooks on life.

In February 2017 Enock travelled on an aeroplane for the first time to give an inspirational speech at our fundraising dinner in Scotland. Whilst in the UK he also seized a special opportunity to join the BBC in London for 1 week of work experience.  In Dec 2020, Enock made us even more proud when he graduated with a Mass Communication and Media Studies qualification.
