Explore Their Stories
Nearly 100 students study at Faraja every year, each one with their own unique story to tell. They come from different backgrounds, face different challenges, and work toward different dreams. Here are just a few of their stories.
Meet Antony, who is in Class 6. He has osteogenesis imperfect (brittle bone disease), which means that his bones are soft and break easily. He is a super outgoing, friendly, smart, and a world-class photo bomber!
This is Loyce, who is in Class 2. She has cerebral palsy which makes walking somewhat difficult. Loyce is always smiling, very friendly, and loves having her picture taken.
Obedi and DanielClass 4
Here are Obedi and Daniel, who are in Class 4. They came from the same rural village and had the same disability: bone deformities in their legs that were caused by too much fluoride in their drinking water. Obedi and Daniel are Maasai and arrived at Faraja without a word of English. They have learned so much and made great progress physically after several orthopedic surgeries. You can see Obedi’s home and family in this video.
