Jackline Asukuku – Loise Nanyuki Girls Secondary School

My name is Jackline Asukuku, aged 17 years and in grade 12 at Loise girls school. I come from Depatas a few meters on the northern of Ol Pejeta conservancy. When I sat for my grade 8 final examination at Uaso-Nyiro primary school I scored 328/ 500 marks and I was qualified to join a good school but my parents were unable to pay. I thank God for existence of Loise girls school which is an academic centre of excellence for girls from disadvantaged background, and it was at Loise School where I was enrolled into PA-MOJA sponsorship. I thank you very much for were it not of your support, I could not have reached where I am. My dream is to become a doctor and I believe one day I will help a needy child as you have done to me. I promise to work very hard and thank you very much.

Wycliffe Maina – St. Augustine Secondary School

I am Wycliffe Maina and I am from a family of 6 including my single mother, my three brothers, my sister and myself. My two elder brothers schooled up to grade 8 but my mother was unable to take them to secondary school. I am very grateful that you have been supporting meand I am now in grade 12 which is my final year for secondary education I am working hard in school to get good grades that will enable me to get admission to a good Kenyan university. My goal is to become an engineer.

Form 3 (Grade 11) Students

Frederick Maina – Tigithi Secondary School

My name is Fredrick Maina born in 1996 and I live with my grandmother. I am an orphan schooling at Tigithi secondary school and currently in grade 11 (2011). I thank God for my sponsors who have put light into my life which was previously dull. I was always out of school to get school fees and my old Asthmatic granny was unable to pay even as she struggled to provide food for the family. I am grateful for your kind support. I am ambitious to become a teacher in future.

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.

Form 2 (Grade 10) Students

Esther Nyambura Irungu – Kangubiri Secondary School

My name is Esther Nyambura Irungu. I was born on 25th December at Kijabe village, Withare sublocation, one kilometer from Ol Pejeta. Before joining Kangubiri secondary school I went to Kijabe primary school where I did my KCPE and managed to score 339 marks. My parents are subsistence farmers and are unable to support my education I have been at school courtesy of well wishers and bursaries. I am very happy to be enrolled into PA-MOJA bursary programme so that I can realize my vision of becoming a doctor. I would be happy to support another needy child from my community in future. Thanks to Ol Pejeta and donors who are supporting my education.

One my sisters is in Tharua secondary school and my younger sister will be joining secondary school this year. I did my KCPE IN 2009 and attained 328 marks. Since I joined St. Augustine my mother has been struggling to pay my school fees and I have therefore been often sent home for school fees. I thank you for your assistance and willingness to sponsor my education so that I can achieve my goal of becoming an accountant. I promise to work hard and to never let you down. Thank you for your kind support.

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.

Joel Ndun’gu – Sweetwaters secondary school

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.

Patrick Kiiru Mwangi – Thome Boys Secondary School

I am Patrick Kiiru Mwangi aged 15 years and in form 2 at Thome secondary school. I am the third born in a family of six and my siblings are also in school. My elder sister is in college undertaking a course in environmental studies while my younger sister is in grade six. I schooled at Mitero primary school and I was position one having attained 354 out of 500 marks. I was admitted to Ruthagati High school but my parents were unable to pay. I thank God for our area leader who got me a place at Thome boys where I was schooling without paying hoping one day I would get a sponsor. God of all kindness heard my prayers and granted me an opportunity in the PA-MOJA-OPC sponsorship programme. I am very appreciative for the sponsorship and I look forward to helping another child in future.

I am very thankful to have been recruited to PA-MOJA-OPC bursary programme. My future goal is to become an engineer.
