In Loving Memory of Laventa Atieno Opatha
July 2018

It is with deep sadness that we inform our supporters of the untimely death of 10 year old Laventa Atieno Opatha.

Laventa sadly passed away in her sleep last Wednesday 11th July. Her death has come as a complete shock to us all at The Nasio Trust, especially our team in Kenya and most importantly Laventa’s family and friends.

Her teachers described her as a bright girl, and Laventa herself would say that her favourite subjects at school were mathematics and English. She absolutely loved to play football with her friends.

She absolutely loved to play football with her friends.

Sadly last year Laventa lost her mother to a long time illness. They were extremely close after her father died in 2011. For the past year, Laventa had been under the care of her elderly grandmother, and continued to receive unconditional support from The Nasio Trust.

Her death was completely unexpected and the post-mortem reveals that she suffered a heart attack which may be the result of an acute but previously undetected heart condition.

Laventa joined The Nasio Trust in 2012 and was part of our sponsorship programme. A programme that allows us at the charity to offer a better life to children like Laventa, and people like her grandmother, living in extreme poverty.

However, it’s important for me to say that we would not be able to do this work without the help we receive from supporters like you.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
