Stephen Achong has been a resident at the orphanage since 2006. He was born in 2001 to John and Mary Achong and is the youngest of three children. His father passed away due to typhoid fever, leaving his mother to try to care for them alone. Unfortunately, her income could not supply their basic needs. Stephen was enrolled in the safe environment of St. Joseph Orphanage/School, where he has been provided food, shelter, education, and instruction in the Catholic Faith. During his spare time, he can often be found playing soccer with his friends. During his school vacations, he spends time with his family.
