Words of gratitude are expressed from a Kenyan sister who recently completed the HESA program orientation in Kenya.

The orientation for online HESA students in Kenya took place on September 2-3, 2017 at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA). It was a day I looked forward to as I wanted to know more about our benefactors and also meet with other sisters who are in HESA program, with the intention of bonding together as members of one family.

Having spent a few days in school, assignments were already flowing in and we were needed to submit them in time; a laptop offer has never been so timely! I was very happy and grateful to receive it. It has been of great help in my academic research; may the Lord bless our benefactors abundantly that they will never lack.

The workshop took only two days but what we got out of it will last us a lifetime. I am grateful to the HESA team in Kenya who worked round the clock to make sure that the workshop was a success; may the Lord bless your dedication.

I will keep you all in my prayers.
