NEW CHAPTER IN LIFE

My name is Simon M. Karanja now 22 years of age. I am a resident of Wendo farm. Nakuru – North sub county in Nakuru County.

I was a mere village boy who had desires to pursue his dreams regardless of the hardship and the humble background. I can recall vividly my life in primary level in 1992-2000. The life was merciless and miserable. We could survive without a meal and even other basic needs. During this period I could not afford a smile like other children. My siblings and I started struggling at a tender age. Engaging in casual labor within the village at least to get a livelihood.

After 8 years of struggle I completed primary level in year 2000 and I got 410 marks hoping things will change and my life will become favorable and bearable but things worsened. I had no option but to adapt the prevailing situation. My dream to become a teacher or a nurse was doomed.

In early 2000, I started engaging in different activities like vendoring fruits and vegetables at Wakulima market in Akuru, working in construction sites and also being employed as a herds boy at a tender age till 2004.

I had other elder siblings who were also struggling to get education. My younger brothers and sisters also faced the difficulties. I was the only unique character who was disadvantaged and never joined high school after completing the primary. After four years, I joined FR. Genesio Memorial School but it was difficult for my parent to pay the school fees. I thought that the restoration time has come but I was wrong. Most of the time I was sent home for school fees and I could spend even a month at home. My desires and hopes were doomed though I was determined.

The old chapter was still reigning in my life. Stress, struggle, hopelessness, darkness and shuttered was still part and parcel of my life. My frustration could not be imagined. Thanks to God who strengthened me even in the hardest time ever.

Late year 2006 i.e. third term I was enrolled in the scholarship programme. I came to know about it through a support staff in the institution (baba Mungai). Through him and mr. Keffa I applied for the scholarship programme in early year 2006 and I was privileged to be enrolled in the scholarship programme.

At the time of enrollment, poverty level in the family was alarming. It was very hard to pay my school fees though I was certain that one day I will achieve my dreams no matter how long it takes, something that I still hold even to date.

The scholarship programme opened a new chapter in my life when NCCK started paying my school fees. through the programme I got a chance and an opportunity to reasise my goals. When sat for my K.C.S.E at Goshen High School and got a B plain (60), I started seeing a bright future that was doomed.

From then my life changed and was transformed completely. I was a spiritual leader back in high school. Today I hold a senior position in my local church. I was also able to influence my younger siblings and encourage them to persue their dreams and withstand the challenges of life. Never allow challenges to be an obstacle in life but let them be a stepping stone to success.

At the moment am working and plans are underway to further my education to desired level i.e PHD regardless the financial constriction.

The project-scholarship programme was very helpful, fruitful and productive to many especially my colleagues and I who shared the same challenges and experiences.

Truly, “Sky is the limit and what is impossible to man is possible to God.
