Sinds 2006 zet Samburu Child Support zich in om kinderen uit achtergestelde gezinnen te helpen. In deze periode hebben wij met hulp van alle donateurs hele mooie resultaten geboekt, waaronder:

– Bijna 2000 kinderen hebben een middelbaar schooldiploma gehaald!552862_433046626727802_65454432_n

– Leerlingen halen bovengemiddelde cijfers waardoor relatief veel studenten een studiebeurs voor het HBO of de Universiteit bemachtigen

– Oud-leerlingen hebben banen gevonden als leraar, journalist en accountant.

– Op korte termijn zorgt het activiteitenprogramma tijdens de schoolvakanties voor lokale werkverschaffing. Oud-leerlingen worden ingehuurd om bijlessen te geven of te helpen bij het organiseren van sociale hulpverlening en sportevenementen.

Dear Samburu Child Support,

Finally got a chance to express my heartfelt gratitude to one of the most important persons in my education journey!

I am Rosella Tuken, 20 years old, a graduate from St Theresa’s secondary school at Wamba, Samburu East Constituency. I cleared high school in the year 2012 with A- grade, emerging among the top ten best students in the county, among which 75% were in Samburu child program. The effort was from combined effort from various persons among the program.

The program helped me a lot through the holidays tuition and the school fees. This always gave me serenity and peace of mind besides keeping me busy during the vacations. This is because my mother couldn’t financially support me fully throughout my high school. The burden on her was reduced  by the program that gave us free vacation tuition, pocket money and paid a certain lump sum for school fees. This has helped me greatly in achieving my education goals and enhancing my career as after high school I joined university immediately.

The good education background while in high school granted me chances to go places. This is because three scholarships offered me to sponsor me fully on higher education. Since they were mutually exclusive I accepted one and declined the rest. Now am a junior at United States International University-Africa, pursuing B. Science in International Business Administration, with a Finance concentration. I have an excellent academic stand, 3.905/4.000 Cumulative GPA. This is all because of the effort of the Samburu Child Support  program.

Thank a lot supporters who work is not in vain, Samburu child has really been empowered by your effort.

Yours grateful,

Rosella Tuken
