School Fees Problem

In kitale one friend of mine was in a turmoil with nothing to do at hand after the frailer of their parents in terms of education in making him achieve the best in education.He was very much determined to become what the fluter cold hold for him but the issue of school made him out of school many times. Sometimes he cold wake up with a faint that resulted him to abscond school for months . As one of my friends i had to gather courage and we tried to talk with the parents and his uncles who in return did acknowledge it. They did pay school fees in turns and bits until the boy complied his forth year in high school Through this the boy has learnt many things in life that has motivated him more to learn that nothing is impossible and that you can make it no matter what so long as you are determined and having faith and hope of making it
