Joseph is a young Kenyan who resided at the children's home I volunteered at in Nakuru, Kenya. Abandoned by his parents and living a hopeless life as a Kenyan street urchin, he was brought into the home and is now learning to read and write for the hope of a better life. Although a warm and engaging young man, his past is always present and can be seen in his eyes.

Location: Nakuru, Kenya
