because of you my life has changed Ben was raised in the slums of Korogocho — or the “city of trash” — in Nairobi, Kenya. He often wondered if he would be another statistic — one who died from drug addiction or disease.

But today Ben tells us,

“Right now, I am living a dream I never dreamt. I never dreamt of being where I am today.”

You can also view A Life Changed: Ben’s Story on YouTube.


MyCompassionSunday is an easy and unique way to bring life-giving change to children around the world — children like Ben.

Will you help change the story for a child living in poverty through MyCompassionSunday?

    This caught my eye because I have sponsor kids in the Korogocho slum. This video is very i inspiring. I am hopeful that my Nairobi slum kids will also turn out to be successful in Christ as this wonderful young man.
