PHANICE KERUBO

My name is Phanice Kerubo from Samogara village in Marani sub- County. I’m a form three student at Itibo Girls

My father is mentally disabled and my mother passed away when l was 13 years old. After the death of my mother, I first stayed with my primary school head teacher then with my maternal grandmother who brewed and sold alcohol. Life was unbearable with my grandmother because of her business, I therefore moved from there and have been staying with the sister to my grandmother who has now been taking care of me.

I was introduced to ADRA while still in primary school. I benefited from the school feeding program, received sanitary towels and rubber shoes all from ADRA. ADRA continued to support me even in high school by paying my school fees and doing my shopping. Last year (2017) I would have dropped out of school but ADRA cleared my school fees balance of Kshs 86,500.  Thank you ADRA. Thank you ADRA donors. I thank God for ADRA

ROBERT OKOTH

ADRA-K school Fees program has given hope to the many otherwise hopeless students. In Bogusero village in Mosocho, we find Robert Okoth, a form four student at Ongicha Mixed Secondary School. Robert was born in 1998 and lost his father in the year 2000 when he was two years of age and later the mother died in 2006 when he was eight years of age.

After the death of his mother, Robert and his sister stayed with the maternal grandparent. In the early years of their stay with the grandparent, they received their basic needs, school levies and other essentials from the grandparent. He joined Nyabola Primary school and became a beneficiary of the ADRA-K school feeding program as feeding was on in this school.

When Robert joined Secondary School, the grandparents, now very old and vulnerable, themselves in need of support from well-wishers, were unable to provide school fees and other school related items. In this unfortunate predicament, thanks to ADRA-K who intervened from form one giving School Fees support plus the personal effects.

Robert sees no possibility of completing his form four without the support from ADRA. His dream can only be alive with the support of ADRA. He is very grateful for the support he has so far received.

Yvonne Adhiambo

My name is Yvonne Adhiambo from Nyakach . I’m a form four student at Kanyamfwa School. My mother died when I was seven years old and left me with my father. Six months after the death of my mother, he remarried. And he decided to take me back to my maternal grandmother. The old lady has since then struggled to take care of me up to now.

Living with an old grandmother has been my greatest challenge more so when she is very sick or if there is no food.  My grandmother is very old and cannot do anything for herself. It has become my responsibility to make sure that I cook for her before going to school and sometime when she is sick I do miss school because she cannot get up from her bed alone.

Getting school fees has been my greatest challenge. My old grandmother has been begging the brother’s grand children to support me.  Which, they do when they feel like. Sourcing for help from well -wishers who can support my high school education is very difficult
