After the death of both parents Jackie and his sister Lucy came to Rift Valley Children's Village in February 2004.

Jackie is now in Form 1 at Edmund Rice Secondary School. He is extremely friendly and easy-going. He is really fun to be around. He likes to give advice and is very social which is apparent with his big circle of friends. Even among volunteers he is not intimidated and joins right in with conversation. He has also acquired a reputation as an excellent storyteller.
Update: Jackie is in the final stretch in his time at the Tropical Institute of Tourism in Arusha. Alongside the regular college curriculum, he is completing courses and fieldwork that will prepare him for a career as a safari guide. He finished a three-month internship this October and is looking forward to one more year of courses. After that, Jackie will start looking for a full- time position and a place to call his own! Jackie remains the personable, charismatic, helpful young man he has always been. Given his welcoming and approachable demeanor, we have no doubt that Jackie will see great success as a safari guide. In his free time, he still enjoys playing soccer, telling jokes, listening to music, dancing, and making new friends.

  • Jackie's First Update of 2014!

    [img]/images/user/3911_10420945629986855653.jpg[/img] Jackie, is an incredibly friendly and positive young man. He really looks up to older boys, including volunteers and had fun practicing/perfecting English with some of our volunteers recently over the Christmas break! Jackie along with his peers from Eagle's Nest were the envy of the entire RVCV family on Christmas day. The boys performed some rather exceptional dance moves to the beat of some popular Tanzanian tunes... they even got called back for an encore! It was a really fun day and so nice to see the kids enjoying themselves!
