Felix is the first born in a family of 5. His mum is the only bread winner since the father passed two years ago. As the first born, he is sometimes tasked with the responsibility of providing for his family. This has affected his academic performance becuase he would miss school often. Additionally, becuase he lacked school fees he would often be sent home. In 2019, Felix was shortlisted for the scholarship program, by this time, he had stayed home for over 6 months without attending school.

Joining the scholarship program helped him stay in school for the better part of 2019. However, in 2020, the pandemic affected his studies. This was also during a critical time in the academic years, over 1,000,000 students were expected to sit for their final high school exam. With the help of commited supporters like you, we opened our center in Kibera to over 30 students during the pandemic inorder for them to able to catch up with their studies and ensure that we address mental health challenges during the pandemic.

Through the help of proffesional teachers and mentors, the students successfully went through the 7 months program and Felix was one of them. When the results were announced in March 2021, Felix came on top of his class with min grade of B+. This grade is enough to take him straight to university. Felix is part of 20 other students who are part of our scholarship program. Thank you for supporting Felix to achieve his dream
