“Poverty is not only happening somewhere else, overseas: it’s happening in Australia as well,” says Daisy Nguyen, a volunteer from RESULTS.

It’s a warm, sunny afternoon in Nairobi, Kenya as I pull up to Cheleta Primary School on the back of a motorbike. I’m greeted by a brightly painted cement gate that has the school’s vision written in bold black letters: A school without learning limits. As I climb off the bike and walk through the gate, enthusiastic voices fill the air – children repeating their lessons, eager to succeed. Inside, the school principal Mary Kimani Wahu gives me a warm hug and welcomes me into her office. Her passion for the students at Cheleta Primary is palpable. Cheleta’s vision – a school without learning limits – may seem like common sense. But for many children across the globe, the barriers to learning are enormous.
My Story is Proof. I can’t tell my story without first telling my parents story. My family is originally from Togo, a small country in West Africa. My father is my very first hero and my role model. My grandfather had 19 children. He was a farmer and tried his very best to provide for his family. Nevertheless, he couldn’t.
