HN Issue 12: Where are they now? Mado Adi, Kenya

We return to graduated community to hear how the FH partnership changed a student's future and an entire village.

In 1995, Ali Sora was dealing with the death of his father. This left Ali’s mother to singlehandedly support him and his eight siblings, despite a drought that had just decimated their livestock. 

Although Ali was one of the most promising elementary students, there was no money to send him on to high school when the term began. It just so happened that this was right at the time that FH Canada was starting to work with Ali’s community of Mado Adi, Kenya. They were just beginning sponsorships and scholarships as part of the development partnership. 

The community unanimously implored FH to award Ali a scholarship for his secondary studies. Once the details were worked out, Ali jumped right into the second term of the school year, quickly coming up to speed. 

More than ten years after graduation, Ali still lives relatively close to Mado Adi. He works as a clerical officer with the government’s Ministry of Internal Security and Provincial Administration, and he has two sons and a daughter. 

“It’s because of FH’s support that I am who I am today,” he says. It was that extra support during a really rough time that marked a turnaround for Ali and his family. 

One of Ali’s brothers is also working for the government, and together they are supporting their sister who is completing an advanced diploma program. 

Ali says he knows many former sponsored kids and scholarship recipients from Mado Adi who are now employed as teachers, police officers, health professionals and government workers. Like him, they’re also investing in their families — both the ones they grew up with and the one’s they’re proudly beginning.
