Students and their families were also part of the crowd when Susan’s children Adam and Sarah Contos revealed the plaque marking the launch of the new school building that has been five years in the making.

Rotary Club of Nakuru president Victor Achoka said he had known Susan for five years, before she became a Rotarian.

‘This is quite impressive but what our club has done for you is insignificant compared to what you have achieved,’ Victor said.

‘You can expect 100 per cent from us in the future.’

Susan said ‘a wonderful man called Gabriel’ had inspired her to open a school in the Kaptembwa slums. She said the late Gabriel was her children’s grandfather and the opening marked the fifth anniversary of his death.

‘He was the epitome of family and this gave me the guidance to come to Kenya to help families,’ Susan said.

‘All my children and their parents who come through our gates are our family and we look after each other.

‘I could never have done what I do without my children.

‘This school is from my children to your children of Kenya.’

Adam, of Cottesloe, said he was proud to be opening the new Gabriel Learning Centre.
