Bendeko Kirimbe came to the US from a refugee camp in Zambia where he lived for five years after fleeing Congo. He is a student in our Adult Basic Ed morning class. He has a high school diploma from his country, but his transcript was destroyed in Congo. He works as a night custodian at the Los Gatos-Saratoga High School District. Jen Smith, his teacher, found out that he wanted to be a plumber and started exploring ways for him to get some type of certification/license. Long story short, he is on his way to San Jose City College in January and will be enrolling in the construction trades program.
