Lydia has her eyes on the prize, she won’t need help in the future!

While most of us have trouble spelling ‘anaesthesiologist’, Lydia Kavai is in no doubt. That’s what she wants to be. 
Lydia’s ambition: “To become an anaesthesiolgist and become a part of Kenya’s expanding medical services. I also want to help my family and in particular my brothers and sisters achieve their goals”.
When we met up recently with this lovely young lady with a bubbling personality and a steely determination to succeed in her chosen field, she reminded us that there is so much undeveloped talent in Africa.  Its youth just need a little help.
Charles and I are pleased to sponsor Lydia’s studies at Thika Medical Training College outside the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.  With two brothers and two sisters, it is a struggle for Lydia’s family to meet the ever increasing cost of Kenya’s private education system.  They sponsor her because kids that are trying hard are their inspiration, they will break the cycle of Africa’s poverty and donor money.
Thika Medical Training College started in 1969 under the sponsorship of Norwegian Government in collaboration with the Kenya Government. It presently has over 500 students.
