Iacob’s family consists of two members: him and his father. He is a special child, maybe you could call him a star child because he has a world of his own. He likes to discover the wonderful world of history, flora and fauna.
Because Iacob is dealing with Diabetes, he has to follow a very strict diet, in which he is proving himself to be very independent and responsible. Unfortunately, he doesn't have the possibility to go in for sports or other extracurricular activities because his regime limits him strictly. He studies and reads a lot, likes new experiences and discoveries. He is in very good relations with his classmates. Iacob loves school because it is an interesting and pleasant place for him.
Gabriel’s family originally comes from the Kamba tribe from the Eastern part of Kenya. He lives with his parents and two older siblings at Ole Kasasi area about 3 kilometers from the school. The pandemic has hit them quite hard and the small earnings of the family can barely cover their basic needs.
Being able to visit the Waldorf school means the world to Gabriel. He is assured of warm meals, education, care and love from teachers, his fellow pupils and the whole community. He walks to school every morning. He is a happy and dedicated boy who loves to play football with his friends. While at home, Gabriel helps his mother with minor household chores.
