Lengesen Isaiah




Isaiah was born in 1995. He comes from a traditional nomadic family that resides in an area called Ilakwen which is 30 km from Ndonyo Wasin Primary School. He has two brothers who are older than him who look after the family cows and goats and 3 sisters – two of whom are married and one who is younger than him and is still at home. He is the only one in his family to go to school.

In 2002 a new Preschool opened near where he lived. He heard about it from his friends and decided to try it. It was simply a blackboard propped against the tree trunck of a large shady thorn tree with a warrior with 4 years of primary school as the teacher. His parents never went to school and they did not really understand much about it but Isaiah was so adamant that he should attend everyday that they agreed to let him go. A year later he insisted that he go to Ndonyo Wasin Primary School and he walked the 20 kilometers on his own to enroll as a border when he was 8 years old.

Isaiah had marks of 265 in his KCPE exams. He is a good soccer player and on the team. His is very outgoing and popular and loves acting.
