AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
My name is Shem Aberi Nyangate aged seventeen years. I come from Bosire Village, Mokubo Su – County which is in Kisii County.
As one of the beneficiaries, I come from a simple family background where we reside, I together with my three brothers together with my parents. My father is a seasonal farmer together with my mother, within the past few years, my mother’s asthmatic disease has directed so much money to various hospitals while my father strives so hard to upkeep the family from our small farm.
I was enrolled to the Scholarship Programme in the year 2016 while I am in high school currently heading you form four.
I must say that the scholarship has greatly helped me because while in form one and two I kept being sent away from school every now and then, in search of school fee.
I have now settled and an focused on my studies. I came to know of the scholarship programme through our sponsorship captain while at school and I took an extra step of applying for the same and indeed God helped me to being one of the beneficiaries.
The poverty levels before were very high, I can say at their maximum such that we had to sell some of the things from the house in order to cater especially for me and the family in general.
Not long, it was after when the N.C.C.K Kisumu Branch made some connections with my father, telling him that I had been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the scholarship. Wow!
We travelled all the way to Kisumu where I signed the registering documents and since then I have been an N.C.C.K Scholar .
My attitude towards life changed as I turned into a new life. It was like going to school on the first day. You can confirm that from my dad. The project is now growing exponentially and all this is because of God.
My spiritual life has since then changed. I read the bible at least thrice a week and I attend the school’s evening and morning devotions. To crown it all is the fact that I accept Jesus as my personal Savior.
At home I usually study especially during the morning hours and late into the night because that is when I reason out best (quiet place).
Am dreaming of becoming a doctor ten years to come and I know that through god, my dreams are valid.
My biggest challenges are in mathematics because I lack speed. Otherwise, the content I have it. The great task that I am already undertaking is practicing on speed speed speed and I know that I shall make it. Thank you.
