Harrison goes to America for University

OPEN YOUR ARMS AMERICA, WE ARE SENDING YOU HARRISON, KENYA'S BEST!!!!

Today I am a happy man indeed. Emotional in fact. Exactly 25 years ago today, on the 22nd August 1992, I left my village in Kenya, went to the airport and boarded an airplane that took me to America to begin my further studies at Harvard. This was after having had my early education sponsored by a generous Swedish stranger, Ms Hilde Back (pictured). Today, another lucky Kenyan boy has just left his village under very similar circumstances and boarded an airplane for the first time to go to America for his unviversity studies. Harrison Kitema, whose education was sponsored by the Hilde Back Education Fund (www.hildebackeducationfund.org), the Kenyan charity that was named after my Swedish benefactor, is on his way to Pennsylvania, where he will study at the reputed Franklin and Marshall University. It's a dream come true for Harrison. As for me and Hilde as well as for the foundation, it's a moment of great pride.

Harrison scored A in each of the 8 subjects he was examined on. He is no doubt one of Kenya's finest young minds. We wish him the best as he embarks on this new journey in America, and look forward to welcoming him back in a few years to help us educate and empower more poor kids, for EDUCATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT!!!
