My name is Reuben Mashiya, 21 years of age, from Shinyalu sub county, Kakamega County.
I come from a humble Christian family, I was enrolled to the scholarship programme in the year 2014.
I knew about the sponsorship programme through family and friends, before the sponsorship I was unable to pay my school fees I used to be sent home during the terms to go for school fees which interrupted my studies hence affecting my academic life.
I was lucky since I was enrolled to the NCCK scholarship which aided me in paying my school fees, from then I was able to attend classes regularly without interference ie being sent home for fees.
The scholarship programme has really changes my life from then up to today both academically and spiritually it has motivated me to work on my dream.
I dream to become a medical doctor. I also dream to sponsor the needy and the less fortunate in society. The challenge in that I find it difficult to fully raise my university school fees.
