Camilla Thon act of kindness brings back lost hope   (published in Kenya)

May 17, 2013 by   Comments(2)

Former Norwegian volunteer Camilla Thon volunteered in both the Projects Abroad Kenya conservation and care projects. Besides her hardwork, her helping nature left lives changed at the conservation project. In her quest to help she came up with the idea of donating KSHS.20,000 to each ranger at the conservation. With the whole amount summing up to more than a hundred thousand, an idea to help only one with the donation making a much longer impact was borne by one of the rangers. Tonny the head research scientist together with Njenga the conservation Manager were left with heavy task of deciding most suited candidate to receive the cash donation. The interview date was set with each candidate expected to impress the interviewers, all kinds of answers were given to the question, “what would you do with the money if you happened to receive it?” Some said they would uplift their families by building a better house and buying new clothes, another candidate had the idea of starting a second hand clothes business but the winning idea was Cecilia’s going back to school. Failing to proceed with her education due to lack of funds, Cecilia had to seek for a job to survive, her lucky star came shining when the interview panelist picked her as the winner, in the package she received a brand new laptop to help her with her studies, she also joined Kenya Wildlife training institute in Naivasha where she is enrolled in a 2 year diploma course in Wildlife Management, with all expenses catered for by Camilla.
