Many years ago, it was Isaiah and a few of his peers who inspired us to think about creating an organization to support Samburu youth, as he studied relentlessly while in primary school.  Now a student at Likii Hills High School, Isaiah was recently selected by the school faculty to be the student body leader for the 2014 school year.  His school, located about 60 miles from his home, draws students from all over Kenya including many of the more affluent communities. According to his teachers, Isaiah’s background is among the most humble and most poor among his peers.  Isaiah is a perfect example that hard work and strong character help us achieve great things in life no matter our background.
