Marvin Ouma15 May, 2017
Marvin, born in 2004, is a destitute orphaned child whose biological origin is unknown. Having been abandoned in the streets at the age of four, Marvin was picked up by a police officer in the slum area of Kajjansi. An extensive search for his parents and relatives was conducted but no one came forward to claim the boy. Marvin quickly became tired of staying with the police and started visiting a nearby elderly Good Samaritan woman. Florence, age 71, was subsequently authorized by the police to take care of Marvin and she immediately loved the young boy as her own grandson. Florence, now known as Marvin’s Grandmum, also supports five other grandchildren and earns her living by selling local tea. Her meager income is not nearly enough to pay the overwhelming expenses of rent and daily meals. Florence is unable to pay for Marvin to go to school. Marvin had never had the privilege of going to school but maintained his passion to attain education. Marvin was accepted by Neema Children’s Ministries, the outreach program of Kingdom Child Project. Neema Child Project’s Child Development Program provides funding toward Marvin’s education, nutritional needs and medical care. Marvin is a very humble and motivated boy and his dream is to become an Engineer.
