And the 2014 Africa SOMA Scholarships go to...

Africa SOMA is proud to announce our 2014 Africa SOMA scholarship students!

Each year Africa SOMA awards the two boys and two girls who receive the top scores on the KCPE exams in the Elangata Wuas District with full four year high school scholarships. These scholarships are supported by donors such as yourself. 

This Tuesday our coordinator, Isaac Kakeni, met with head teachers from each school to determine which students received the top scores in the district. Without further ado we are proud to announce Africa SOMA's 2014 scholarship students:

The top two KCPE scoring girls are Sampuru who attends Emurkea Primary and Dorcas from Enchorro Primary. The top scoring boys are Kelvin from Indupa Primary and Mesheti from Singiraine Primary. We hope you join with us in congratulating them on their hard work and wishing them all the best in their high school careers. 

Africa SOMA also awards a 10,000ksh ($116 USD) school improvement bonus to the primary school which has the highest number of high scoring students. For 2014 we're proud to announce that Emurkea Primary is the winner and will be receiving the money to improve their school as they best see fit. 

Thank you again for supporting education. For these rural Maasai students, high school education is something that is out of the reach for the majority of the students in the community. Yet education has been proven, time and time again, to have the greatest impact on increasing the social, economic and health outcomes not only of individuals and their families but communities as a whole.
