Even a journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step and yes we did just that. On the 14th September, 2013, we had our first Kids Festival as a mode of fundraising. Their was lots of fun, snacks and drinks for all ages. There were workshops on face painting, beading,kids cinema,story telling from Story Moja and many others. We had performance by Mojjo and Eddie Grey and the Karen Recorder Consort, we were also amazed by the Sarakasi performance.

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!
