Helping In School Fees Payment

I am Peter Kanini. I am a student at Kakamega high school. I am also now in form three and I am waiting to complete high school sometime next year. After I had finished my primary school, a problem crept since i discovered I was not able to continue with because of hailing from a poor family. Though I had passed very well, it turned out that I could not continue with my education. However, I was lucky enough to get a sponsor who voluntered to pay my entire high school fees after learning of my plight. To date, he has been paying and furthermore he has been buying me shopping and offering pocket money. I am working hard and I hope to pass with flying colours come t the end of my final year.
