Please meet one of our graduates; Malvin Nyabuto

Malvin came to the orphanage in 2018. She was born in a polygamous family, both families living in the town of Kericho. Both of her parents were day workers on tea plantations. Her father was actually an orphan himself. Malvin’s father had been raised by his mother who was a single parent. Unfortunately, the mother died when Malvin’s father was 22 years old. The one uncle that he had refused to take him into his home, so from that age, he was on his own.

He first lived in the streets, but later found day work in the tea plantations. That is where he met and married the woman who gave birth to Malvin. It was later that her father also married another woman and then had two families.

It was during post-election violence in 2007 that the father and mother of Malvin were brutally killed. They hid in the house from the riot of protesters but were burned to ash when the house was surrounded by perpetrators and put on fire. Malvin was three years old at the time.

At first, Malvin went to stay with a stepmother, where she lived for eleven years. But one day the woman left Kericho town. She left no information about where she went to anyone, leaving this girl Malvin behind mercilessly.

This is where we met Malvin helpless and adopted her to the orphanage. The spirit of rejection passed on from the father to Malvin, his daughter!!!

This girl Malvin is humbled to be among other kids in the orphanage and with the good environment of the orphanage, she has a piece of mind and she is praising God for every provision she receives. She likes teaching other kids songs of worshiping God and she trains them memory verses. She has a passion of becoming a teacher of the word of God after school.

Malvin’s favorite subjects in school were, Biology, Mathematics, Christian Religious Education and Agriculture. She enjoys working in poultry and in the farm.

Malvin also practices sewing by hand. Along with Happiness, in their leisure time these girls are learning to make sweaters. Malvin is also good in Drama. 

Here is her testimony written just before graduation:

Hello! My name is Malvin Nyabuto. I am in form four this year (the final year of high school). I joined Log Orphanage some months after my father and mother were brutally killed due to post-election violence here in our country Kenya! I thought my stepmother will help me but she rejected me instead!!

Surely this orphanage has changed my life very much. Right now my life is full of hope and I am greatly delighted to God for the care and protection during my stay here. All my fear was gone from the day I joined this orphanage, and nothing to worry about now.

Before, it reached a time that I was thinking to commit suicide because I feared how I can be fed, where I can stay and who can provide for my necessities But God has always done everything for me in this log orphanage.

I can tell you that God has favored us in this home where we comfortably live with other orphans. We have become one big loving family because of the goodness of our God. I always find time to share positive ideas with these other children who we have been fostered together to be brothers and sisters. To be honest enough our future is promising!!

God bless all who have played a great role in making us feel worthy to live and to serve God through log orphanage Kisii Kenya. Amen
