Sebastián and Emmanuel have become great friends over the past 4 years.
Emmanuel’s own hard work, along with Sebastián’s monthly sponsorship and encouragement through letter writing, has brought Emmanuel out of challenging circumstances to a future full of hope. Emmanuel scored a ‘B’ in his secondary school exams and is now enjoying university life, studying Agricultural Education and Extension.
The pair met in Kenya in 2018 and immediately got on very well. They call themselves ‘E&S, the victorious team’.🧡
In this video Sebastián tells us more about their friendship and why he believes in GEF’s mission.
Some children in Kenya walk 10km per day to get to and back from school. They walk through hilly terrain, unaccompanied and in all weather to receive an education.
Through August we are inviting adults and children to take their own personal journey in support of GEF and help raise funds to supply children in need with school supplies they otherwise cannot afford.
Today Myles Edwards, Kayleigh Paterson and Dahlia visited the Books Abroad SCIO HQ to deliver the last of the books collected in Aberdeen for the new GEF Mel Edwards Memorial Community Library, coming to Iten later this year.
The team helped pack and pallet the boxes alongside volunteer Lorna Bell who has been a huge support to this book project. 📚
