French Club, Drama Club, GSA, FFA, Christian Club, Key Club—something for everyone to be a part of, and they all serve a purpose of some kind.

Sophy is 13 years old. She lives in the dangerous and oppressive slum of Huruma in Nairobi, Kenya. Sophy’s future would have been a bleak one except for one thing, she had the opportunity to attend school. Today she is attending the Furaha High School and is in the top 1% of success in the nation. This was made possible by the Furaha Community Foundation who runs a school in the slum, and the Foundation is just one of the organizations partnered with When I Grow Up, a ministry of Redeemer’s Church in Reedley.
