Social media users responded with kindness, raising KSh 21,000 to cover Brian’s rent, and another individual offered to buy him several outfits. Brian expressed his gratitude after being taken shopping by a well-wisher.

Brian, currently on a long holiday from Meru University, had proactively sought the teaching job in Kisii county. Despite the good news of employment, he faced the challenge of not having suitable attire. Ngare shared Brian’s story, prompting a wave of support.

Ngare recounted, “Today, my younger brother Cyrus picked him up from school and took him to Kisii town. They met Afande Moses, who decided to buy him clothes from top to bottom.”

Ngare also reported that KSh 21,000 had been raised, helping with Brian’s rent and additional clothing needs. “Naomi, who sells clothes in Kisii, bought him vests, shirts, and boxers. Another person promised sports shoes, which will be collected later,” Ngare added.

Grateful for the support from Kenyans, Ngare mentioned they were arranging for a new residence near the school for Brian, who is an orphan. “I paid two months’ rent to assist him when he returns to campus,” Ngare explained.

In an interview with, Ngare detailed that someone had paid two months’ rent, and the KSh 21,000 was allocated for Brian’s clothing. “As his guardian, I knew he would return to school, and the money would help him settle. He now has new clothes and two pairs of shoes. I rented a small house for him and paid three months’ rent yesterday,” the philanthropist said.

Ngare ensured Brian’s basic needs were met, providing food at school, a mattress, and a blanket. “I have a balance of KSh 10,000 that will help him further. Once he gets his salary, he will be able to sustain himself,” Ngare added.
