Glimmer of Hope For Needy Form One Students Sponsors Step In to Revive Dreams

Several students who were at risk of missing out on their opportunity to enroll in Form One due to a lack of school fees have been given a glimmer of hope thanks to the efforts of well-wishers and politicians.

In South Mugirango, the ‘OSORO CARE CLUB’ program, sponsored by the local MP Sylvanus Osoro, offered financial assistance to 700 students who had faced a bleak future due to the economic struggles in the area.

The program, which is 80% funded by the MP, aims to mentor and support students throughout their four-year high school education.

In Kitutu Chache South, 72 students were sponsored by the local MP Anthony Kibagendi. The beneficiaries were made up of 42 girls and 30 boys who were able to attend St Angela Sengera Secondary, Gekomoni Secondary and Cardinal Otunga Mosocho.

Guardians were only required to pay a small fee of Sh 5,000 and the remaining balance was paid for by the MP’s initiative.

Two students from Vihiga and Kakamega North were also able to attend their dream school, Kakamega High School, thanks to the kindness of well-wishers who paid their school fees.

The two students, Fabians Omondi and Francis Lihanda, were both orphans and had achieved high scores on the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam.

They were close to losing their chance at the prestigious school but their luck changed when they received the support they needed.

In Uasin Gishu, Allocious Kipkorir was able to attend Friends School Kamusinga thanks to the support of Mosop MP Abraham Kirwa.

Kirwa cleared Kipkorir’s school fees, provided all necessary items and even pledged to support his entire high school and university education.

Another student, Emmanuel Mwenda, was able to attend Meru School after well-wishers led by Athwana MCA Jim Muchui raised the funds.

In Baringo, 20 students who achieved 300 marks and above were offered full scholarships by Kapluk Secondary School. The school was moved by the students’ plight and decided to help those in need.

In Meru, MCA Jim Muchui also assisted 300 students who achieved 260 marks and above with mattresses, boxes, buckets, and other items to ease the burden on their parents.

Many other politicians and education officials, including Tigania West MP John Mutunga, Meru Assembly Speaker Ayub Bundi, MCAs, and professionals, also stepped in to help with the transition to secondary school for these students. In total, at least 10 pupils received scholarships.

It is heartening to see the outpouring of support for these students in need. These young people had the drive and determination to succeed but faced challenges that were beyond their control.

Thanks to the efforts of those who came to their aid, they can now focus on their education and have a brighter future ahead of them.
