IMS Skates for Sister School in Kenya
Peninah is the oldest of six children and a student at Moi. Her grandparents raised her after her father left and her mother died at an early age. Her father returned years later with three cows, the family’s sole source of income. Regional draught threatens the livestock and any monies that might be put aside for education.
Sophia, aged 16 is the oldest of seven children. In order to help support the family, Sophia’s four younger sisters have already been married-off. Her mother suffers from ill health and does her best to support the family with a bead-work business.
