Paying My University Fees

My name is Eunice Adongo .I am a native of kakamega and a student at Mt Kenya University.After I failed to get a direct entry to the university by the Joint Admission board, I concluded to myself that i had come to a timely dead end.My parents are not that able so getting them to pay my school fees was just imposible. I had heard of a certain canadian organization named ACESS which payed school fees for poor willing students.I visited their offices which is based in Milimani Estate in Kakamega Central.They heard my story and saw my willing heart which was ready for education. I applied for Mt Kenya University as a self-sponsored student and they have been paying for me all along and they have even promised to pay for me until i am through with my education.
