The OBREC School Story - unedited
Dear Mr. Ojanga,
May I take this opportunity to appreciate you for taking your time to identify with the cause of the poor and the needy at Ogwedhi Bi-Vocational and
Rehabilitation Centre in Homa Bay town.

It was unfortunate that I was not present because I had traveled to Nairobi but upon my return got all the information. The background of the orphanage and the school is contained on the second email. Your visiting was a courageous move which has never been done by any man of your caliber in this society.

Now that you have identified with the poor and the needy, God himself is going to reward you according to the scriptures. We believe that this is the beginning of other things to come. Greetings from the children and the entire staff of OBREC’S King Kids Academy.

Thank you in advance, looking forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,

Lawrence Allosso Kojwang.
Executive Director.
