Little Jeff he may only be 6 years old but he's got a handle on where he dreams his life needs to go. He tells us he wants to be a pilot in order to run the fish business he is going to start. There is a special kind of fish that you can only get in an area called Kainuk, which is on the Kenyan, Tanzanian border. The fishery there specially dries these fillets of fish no bones he tells us. So he needs to be able to fly there and get his supply of fish to bring back and sell oh and he says they are his favorite. He's a brilliant little boy ranked 4th in his kindergarten class and math is his favorite subject.

He has big dreams and a desire to learn, but to do that he needs to be rescued from the slums of Kipsongo where he currently lives. Where there is true lack and lawlessness, these influences on his precious little life will take their toll as he grows up.

His older sister Deborah has already been sponsored and moved into the orphanage and he is so happy for her. He shares that he is ready to join her and get away from the fighting in the slum. His eyes are glassy, red and watering and he says they hurt we can tell he needs some medical care.

We are excited to find a sponsor for him and get him moved into the orphanage as soon as possible.
