Car mechanic students profit from real world experience

Car mechanic students profit from real world experience

Written by Ted Horton

I dropped by Jascruisers today to see my friend Jasi and check on Francis, Paul and James – 3 hard working HHFL kids who are currently interning at Jasi’s garage as part of their auto mechanics curriculum.

These 3 young men have been part of our lives at HHFL since 2005. The parents of Francis and James (and his little brother Brian) died of Aids before they all came to live at HHFL. Paul lost his mother and his father couldn’t care for him, so he too came to live in the HHFL hostel.

Several years later and these young men are now in the second and final year of an auto mechanics course at a local college. Jasi, their boss and my good friend has taken all of them on for a 3 month internship in his very busy car /truck servicing and repair shop in Karen, Nairobi.

For Francis and James, it’s their second round with Jasi. “They are good boys” he says. I know each of them very well and I know they are determined to prove themselves. We are proud of them. Thank you Jasi for believing in them and giving them a chance.
