 Marcus Otieno the Goal Keeper

Marcus Otieno came to little rock 9 years ago and is one of our 12 pioneer students.  He came when he was 3 years old and is now a primary school student, a talented soccer player, and a great goal keeper. This year he was selected as the goal keeper for the Ligi Ndogo Football Club during their tournament in Norway. Marcus is the first born in a family of four, and has proven that despite being raised in the slums of Kibera, you can still live up to your dream of being a great goal keeper. Because of his talent, he was invited to join the Manchester United Youth team, but was not able to travel to the UK due to lack of a birth certificate.

Thanks to the great foundation he got at Little Rock Marcus has continued to succeed academically and maintains a 70% mean grade. We expect to see and hear more great things from Marcus!
