Maybin Luya

For those of you lucky folk to have visited the Upeme Project, I am sure you have met Maybin, and like everyone else, been very impressed with him. Maybin has been living at Upeme since it started, he helped build the orphanage, and has done a lot of other jobs around the site during his breaks from school. You will be happy to hear, Maybin finished his grade 12 exams! Unfortunately, his school didn't do any sort of ceremony or anything. He is now in the process of deciding what he wants to do next - a huge decision for anyone. He cannot apply to colleges and universities until he gets his results back, and that could take until April - in the meantime he is looking for work! A big CONGRATULATIONS to Maybin!


  1. Quick question: Can you show us photos of your 'compound' area? The school, your home. It helps us put ourselves there with you. Thanks. Noklebys

  2. I can't wait to meet Maybin. From all the stories I have heard, he sounds like a great kid. I believe there will more success stories coming out of Upeme. :) Great Job!
    Love mom and dad k

  3. Hey there please pass my congrats along to Maybin. Don't forget to give him the card I left. Auntie Debra
