Let me introduce myself: my name is Jared Ochieng and I am
pleased to teach at Topcrest Academy. It shall soon be Topcrest
Integrated Academy. With Carolyn’s and perhaps your help we can
reach this goal in the very foreseeable future.
We would like to build a better platform for the young people
here at Topcrest, and create awareness among individuals of self-
reliance, self-acceptance whilst learning the necessary skills that
will enable them to positively face life.
We have already started by simple steps: building friendships in
the community, forming partnerships with the relevant
community based organisations. For example the Bombolulu
workshop, Akamba woodcrafts and the links to an agricultural
farm. By these activities, we hope to reduce the rates of early
exposure to use of harmful drugs and other immoralities. We also
endeavour to strengthen the self-reliance minds of the young
people, to learn by doing, to learn the ‘know how’ so they are not
reliant on family, relatives, or for that matter the government.
