By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Helping to pay school fees Kevin mopesa is my friend whom we went with to the same primary school.He was always the best student in our class but it was so unfortunate he was an orphan.he was just staying with his grandmother.Life was unbearable to him,he was struggling all along when it came to accessing food,clothing and other basic needs.Time came when we did our final year in primary school after which he posted exemplary results.He was then called by a national high school.It was good news to our school for having sent someone to a national school since it's inception but it wasn't long when our happiness was cut short.The reason for this is that he did not have enough funds to pay his high school fees.Kevin saw his dreams cut short.However ,our former kindhearted headmaster led Kevin to a certain organization named ACCESS which gives a chance to poor students to access education.ACCESS heard his story and decided to pay his high school fees.They have been paying his school fees up to when he finished his final year,last year.Good enough,when the results were out he got an 'A' in everything and hopes to be a doctor in future.I thank ACCESS for helping him and many others.
