In 2007, we told you how some of the boys at Calvary Youth Hostel were headed to college. One of the boys, Jedi Emason, began in May 2007 at Kenyatta University, pursuing a bachelor’s in Education. If you look back on that post, you can see the list of students headed off to college and Jedi is right there! He is #2 on the list!
We recently received an email from Benson, our director in Kenya, regarding Jedi.
Jedi Emason graduated on 10th December 2010 with Bachelor of Education second class honors upper division. By the grace of God he has acquired a teaching position in a Secondary school at a very remote place in the Northern Kenya.
Four years ago when we first sent these boys off to college, we had high hopes that they would be successful. Your consistent $7/month has allowed Jedi to not only complete college, but find a steady teaching job! In his own words…
I am very thankful for the massive support of Mocha Club towards my schooling. They have actually done a good thing in my life by educating me through their greater support. I do indeed highly recognize and appreciate the concerns and support. May Almighty God bless them for their greater concerns.
It is amazing to see how $7/month had changed these boys’ lives and now Jedi has the chance to continue bringing education to students in Northern Kenya!
