UPDATE: Laban continues to excel because of the opportunities sponsorship has help present. He's now in his second year of college, studying ICT - Information, Communication and Technology. He's been learning cyber security and computer systems installation. This guy is loving it. He laughed as he told us they were teaching him how to hack into computers so he could create new securities to protect them. Part of his college course has included an internship that has given him great exposure and experience. Laban is excited about his life path. He's easy and fun to talk with and loves sharing what's going on in his life. We're looking for a new sponsor that would enjoy connecting and encouraging him. Your sponsorship funds will be used to help with his housing, food and data expenses as he's in college. Would you consider sponsoring Laban, we think you'll enjoy getting to know him?

ORIGINAL STORY: This young AMAZING young man is Laban. He is 17 and in Form 3, which is the same as being a junior in high school here in the states. We have known Laban since he was shorter than most of us - now five years later he towers over us. All of us at MAF LOVE Laban so much. He is on his way to being an amazing leader among his piers and at 6'4" plays a mean game of basketball on the high school team.

When Laban was born his father refused to believe he was his child and left his mother to care for him by herself. She later remarried, but customarily step parents in Kenya often reject children not their own due to the responsibility of another mouth to feed. Laban went to live with his grandmother as a baby but with her being very old and not working, Laban would often go hungry. He started going to Seed’s feeding center, so he was able to be fed at least once a day. His grandma struggled to care for him and when he was five years old Hellen and Richard stepped in a rescued him and moved him into Seed's Children's Home. His current sponsor has recently needed to drop his sponsorship. Mighty Acorn was asked to help find him a new family to help him in his quest to finish school. Laban is such a bright young man with a heart of gold. He is a true friend to so many, putting others before himself. He is our gentle giant and we know that he will go far in life. He is truly one of the most special boys in the world! We love Laban and we know you will too! Would you consider coming alongside this amazing guy - he wants a family that will write him and he can connect with them?

Built on love and hope.
