When Hilde Back sponsored a young, impoverished Kenyan student she thought nothing of the $15 a term she paid to keep him in primary school. She certainly never expected to hear from him, but many years later, she does. Chris Mburu has been thinking of Hilde, the 'angel' who made his education possible, since he was a boy. Chris is now a human rights lawyer with the United Nations.
