This empirical research examines the factors of success of highly gifted students in the Kenyan NGO Mully Children's Family Home (MCF), which takes in traumatized, marginalized and neglected children, provides them with a home and an education. The research builds on the results of the research on MCF Rempel (2017) and is based on the actiotop model (Ziegler 2005) and its associated learning resources (Ziegler & Baker, 2013; Ziegler et al., 2017). The aim of the research is to analyze the significance of these three capitals in the development of young people. At the time of the research, all interviewees were attending Form 2 in the MCF Ndalani Branch secondary school. Using the grounded theory methodology, the result of the study is that the social network had a significant influence on the success of the development and performance of high ability gifted and talented students in the research group.
