DATE:    7th DECEMBER 2017


I am Josephine Wanjiru Wambui. I am twenty eight years old. I am from Muthengera Laikipia West Sub-county in Laikipia county. I currently live in Nairobi Embakasi East. I come from a family of three i.e Mother,Father and I. I was enrolled to the scholarship programme in the year 2007-2009. I graduated in the year 2016. Currently not working but operating a small business.

Before scholarship intervention, I was really in a very very difficult situation I could not afford school fees at all. I spent most of the time at home because of school fees. My mother could hardly support me, considering shes’s a labourer even affording the neccesities was a challenge to her. We could sleep hungry and sometimes being locked out by the landlord due to lack of rent.

The good news about the scholarship got to me through my class teacher. I was given a form to fill in then an interview was conducted days later and lucky enough I was chosen as one of the beneficiaries. Many things changed from then.I could no longer be sent home for school fees . I was comfortable in school since I was never spotted as ever being sent home for school fees. My time for study increased and as a result I improved in my perfomance.

I dream that one day I will be able to give back to the NCCK community. When I get a good job I will contribute towards keeping other needy students in school.
