EXPERIENCE IDENTIFIES ABILITIES
My name is Leleti Akinyi and I am 18years of age. I come from Maranda Village in Bondo Sub-County which is in Siaya County
I come from a family of three girls that is Laura Amy, Rita Akello and me. My family is a single family with my mother. I also stay with my grandmother. I was enrolled by the NCCK in 2017. I am in high school going to from three.
I am from a single parent family whereby my mother is the bread winner. She is a business lady whose business is not stable and she is not able to pay fees for my siblings and I.
I got to know the NCCK sponsorship through a pastor friend who got to know the situation I was in and how my mother struggled to pay for my fee. Before I got to know about the intervention, I went through a lot. I was always sent away from school many a time until my performance was not stable. I stayed for a long at home before my mother would always ask him to help me through my studies.
In 2017 our pastor came and introduced to us the programme and this made me to work extra harder and what brought about the good performance is the fact that I was not sent home for school fee. I really love the project and I am promising to perform best and give back to the scholarship.
I have improved so much spiritually by ways putting God first knowing He answered my prayers, my performance also have been stable and ever learning is now enjoyable.
In the future I would like to be a communist doing communication technology. My challenge mostly is that my family is not financially stable therefore I work hard so as to support my family in the future.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out
Hate; only love can do that.
