My Transformation Story Due To The NCCK Program
I am Eliud Chege, who was born in the remote village of Karura in Kiambu County. I am 23 years old and I just finished my bachelor’s degree in economics and sociology from the Laikipia University.
I come from a family of three i.e. my mother, brother and I. My mother is a peasant farmer and my brother just graduated from Thika Medical school with a diploma in medical engineering.
The NCCK program came to my rescue at a time when I was almost dropping out of Nakuru High School back in 2009. It was then that Pastor Ng’ang’a came to help and told us about the sponsorship from NCCK.
By the grace of God, we applied for the scholarship and I was shortlisted among the favored ten who were absorbed into the program. This was a great relief to my mother who had difficulties in paying my fees and that of my brother who was just joining high school at the time.
The sponsorship really transformed my life as I was now able concentrate on my studies without being sent home to get school fees. With God’s favor, I was able to achieve good grades to join campus and join my dream career of helping the society i.e. sociology.
With this career, I have been able to help communities back home and even in other counties such as Kilifi and Kisumu.
I am looking forward to the day when I’ll be able to sponsor a child and help him/her achieve their dreams.
And to the NCCK fraternity, it is my prayer and wish that you continue helping others to achieve their educational goals and spiritual needs each day. May the almighty God bless you as you continue to do great things in our lives.
