Education Is Power

Just After the K.C.S.E Results were released early this year in februaly.I was overjoyed with praises from my gurdian and friend after i had realised i had got a B+ in my exams.The four years that had me in sheywe secondary school i were not a smooth sail,because of financial problems that strained me getting a good education.Since my parents could not afford to pay my school fees i had to depend on small donations from well wishers and a donor from with the support of WEWASAFO.Even sitting and registering for the exams didnt come that easy untill wewasafo intervened and made sure i did my exams & im so grateful to them for giving me a chance to be able to finish my studies
