They graduated!

Last month, we celebrated with four of our secondary scholars as they graduated from university! Oguna, Chrisborn, Meshack, and Samwel were our first graduates to score high enough on the national secondary exam to receive direct admittance to the university, and they are now all hold four-year degrees. 

Oguna now has a degree from the University of Nairobi in Agricultural Education. Chrisborn now has a degree from Bondo University in Business Adminstration and Information Technology. Meshack and Samwel both graduated from Maseno University, Meshack in Computer Science and Technology, and Samwel in Business Administration and Information Technology. These degrees will enable these four to obtain paying jobs and establish stable careers that will lift themselves and their families out of poverty. 

Recently, Oguna reflected on his life since he became an Umoja scholar and who he hopes to become. He wrote:

“You see when we sit down and remember where we were, maybe eight years back, and where we are now, at least you can see progress. And when you reflect back on your life, you focus not on the negativities, but when you focus on the positives, you see there’s joy. Actually there is something great that is happening.

Indeed you don’t have to have money, you don’t have to have that resource, but you can utilize this little that you have, the time, the resource, however little it is, to impact on life of individuals. Actually I’ll be impressed when I have become a blessing to others.”

We are so proud of these students, and so excited to see what their futures hold.
