Sadiki is a promising example of someone seizing opportunities to improve his own life.

Sadiki relocated to Kenya from Tanzania. Having little exposure to computers, and fluent in Kiswahili but speaking little English, he was able to successfully complete computer training thanks to a grant from Microsoft® Unlimited Potential. This knowledge opened other doors; he then enrolled in the Penn Foster Dental Assistant Program. He didn't have access to a credit card for tuition payment online, but discovered the school offered an alternative—he is making monthly tuition payments through Western Union money transfers.

SADIKI M. of Ugunja, KenyaSadiki has exploited the potential of technology and the Internet, the availability of distance education, corporate community investment grants, and his own initiative and desire. He is working toward his goal of obtaining a degree in dental studies. Currently, Sadiki is a clinical officer with the St. Paul's Health Centre, which is an initiative of the Ugunja Community Resource Centre (UCRC).
