In Kenia is de middelbare school (secondary school) niet gratis. Dit moeten ouders 100% zelf betalen. Wij geven 15 leerlingen een secondary school beurs. Daarnaast ondersteunen wij 3 studenten aan de PWANI universiteit.

Tijdens een van haar werkbezoeken heeft onze voorzitter kennisgemaakt en gevraagd of ze in het kort in hun eigen woorden hun verhaal willen vertellen.
