This project is one of it on own kind in Trans-nzoia District. Educational issues have never been simplified and brought to the door step of every home. For the first time, Makindu and Busemwa villages came together to reward their children in educational achievements. In a unique experience, the pupils from Nursery to Class 8 were awarded various prizes to acknowledge their performances.

Pupils who were between position 1 and 10 in their classes were awarded with various prizes which included, revision exercise book, revision text books, story books, school bags, lantern lamps.

The teachers from the two villages were present to give this unique project the support. Mr Otindo, the Headteacher of Surungai Primary school was the guest of honor. He challenged the community to prioritize education of their children. He regretted that some parents discouraged their children from studying saying their were no jobs for them after all.

Over 200 parents and over 400 pupils participated in the project which while over 70 pupils received awards. Out o fthe 70 awards, 40 went to Girls

This project was funded by globalgiving sponsors and other community stakeholders.
