Ann Gathigia Wangui – Loise Nanyuki Girls Secondary School
My name is Ann Gathigia Wangui from Thome village in Laikipia central. I was born in 1995. When I was young my mother developed a mental problem and I had to be taken care of by Aunt. Later, after my mother got well I went back to Thome where we have been living with my mum and my brother. After my final primary exam, I got admission to Loise Nanyuki Girls. My parents were unable to pay and I greatly thank the school for keeping for a period of two years without school fees. I am happy that my community selected me for PA-MOJA-OPC bursary. I am really working hard to fulfill my goal of becoming a high school teacher. I would wish to change my family’s lifestyle. I promise that when I get a job, I would wish to sponsor a girl at Loise girls secondary school as PA-MOJA/ Ol Pejeta has done to me. Thank you and may God bless you.
Kelvin Kariuki – Thome Boys Secondary School
I am Kelvin Kariuki born on 6th March 1994. I have been raised in a family of five at Withare sublocation, 2 kilometers from Ol Pejeta perimeter fence on the western side. I pursued my primary school course at Kijabe primary school till I did my KCPE in 20009. I scored 345 marks and managed to be position one in our class. As I was about to join high school my sister fell sick and had to undergo a surgical operation and she therefore spent all the little money that my parents had saved. From then I saw clearly that my parents could not be in a position to support my education and my sister’s health since they had no reliable source of income. Thanks a lot to Ol Pejeta conservancy/ PA-MOJA as they came to my support. I must admit that I was unable to contain myself after I learnt that I had qualified for sponsorship. I am working hard to achieve a mean grade A- so that I can realize my dream to become a mechanical engineer.
Beatrice Ekomwa – Endana Secondary School
I am Beatrice aged 17 years and a student of Endana secondary school. I am very glad for having recruited into OPC/PA-MOJA sponsorship earlier this year (2012). Whatever help extended to me is support extended to a needy pastoralist child. I am so happy and I promise to work hard to ensure that I realize my academic dream. I take this chance to thank all those who are sponsoring my education.

James Kamu – Ruthagati Secondary School
I am James Kamu and I was born in 1995. My mother, who was a single mother died in 2003 which forced me to become a street boy. The conditions in the streets were very harsh and I was thus forced to go back to my home village seeking to be employed as a shephered in 2004. Fortunately one woman I met refused to employ me but instead she took me to Sirima primary school where I was enrolled to standard 2 since I was overage. I completed my primary school in 2010 and scored 262/ 500 marks.
I joined Ruthagati secondary school in 2011 and it is my guardian who has been burdened with my educational support but she is unable to pay for my school fees. I am very much grateful to get your support. I look forward to becoming a teacher in future. Thank you for supporting my education.

My name is Joel Ndun’gu from Sweetwaters secondary school. I was born in 1992 to Mr. and Mrs. Mwangi. I am the second born in a family of eleven. In my family we struggle hard to get our day to day basic needs because of the high poverty that has bound my family for many years. When I sat for my final primary school examination I was very much depressed about my future education. This worry affected my performance but I secured a chance at Sweetwaters secondary school where I am currently continuing my education in form 2. I was very happy to hear that community leaders understanding our situation at home forwarded my name to Ol Pejeta conservancy. Now I am sure that my dream of becoming a teacher will come true.
Thank you so much my sponsors.
