Profile

Christina and her twin, Christopher, were born in Oldeani Village in 1999. Their father is unknown and their mother died from an unknown illness when they were still infants. After the death of their mother, the twins and their two siblings were cared for by the eldest sister, Ester, who was about 16 years old at the time. Ester already had twins of her own and was unable to care for everyone, so she came to RVCV for assistance. In June of 2006, we brought both Christina and Christopher to live at RVCV.

Christina has a 100-watt smile. She is a complete prankster, and keeps everyone on their toes. Unflappable with an easy-going nature, Christina marches to her own beat. As a strong student, Christina loves to write and is always brimming with ideas to put on paper. She is a good friend to all of the girls in Manyara house. She naturally pitches in to help and takes her role as one of the leaders in the house in stride. She loves to listen to American music.

  • Christina's First Update of 2014!

    [img]/images/user/4166_9691148677905813208.jpg[/img] Of all the children living at the Rift Valley Children’s Village, Christina is a wonderfully bright, positive and friendly individual. Confident yet respectful, Christina enjoys to relax with her friends in and out of school and also likes to make friends with our staff and volunteers. We are so proud of Christina, she has no trouble chatting to adults in English or Swahili. When home from school, Christina enjoys living in Manyara house with 12 other young girls. A natural leader, Christina is comfortable acting as big sister to the younger girls to help lighten the load for each of the house mama’s. As Christina progresses through Form 2 we’re confident she’ll perform well in this year’s National Exam!
