Home > Peter Kamau

My name is Peter Kamau, am 15 years old and in class eight at Thirime primary school.

It was in 2005 when the director of Nuru Africa, pastor Stephen Ndungu and a white man from Sweden by name Samuel found my younger brother Maina who was a street boy along Lake Naivasha smoking bhang and tobacco.  The Director was very surprised to see the young boy doing such bad things and he asked Maina to show them their home.

Maina agreed to take them to our home that is in Karagita and on arrival they found my mother sitting outside our house. They started talking and the Director, decided to take us to school and cater for all our needs. So in 2006 I started learning at Nuru Centre and there were many other children being helped there.

At the centre we go to play games with other children and after winning we are presented with trophy. We also receive very many visitors who come to see us and I have also learnt other Kenyan language form other children who live at the centre. We also go to school to learn and play with other children.

In 2012 a social worker in Nuru was able to take us home after 9 years in Nuru and was surprised to see home. I am grateful to Nuru Africa for helping me come out from the street life.
