The problem was that she could not afford everything needed in school. She had been called to Naivasha girls high school,a provincial school in Naivasha.

They decided to help the well-performed but unable students to pursue their education upto form four or even after passing well in form four. This was as a result of the form one admission proforma. They were providing everything ,merely everything inluding text books and school fees. Both her and her family were very happy for their golden help and assistance. She was atleast able to enroll to school and and for the time being she is continuing with her education . There are a lot of beneficiaries in our home area and also countrywide.

Sponsoring Poor Students --- LURAMBI, KAKAMEGA ( INDIVIDUAL
I am Oduor Omondi Martin. I am an engineer by profession having graduated a few years back. Getting to this level was not a bed of roses. I remember my childhood was married by problems due to object poverty in our household. I went through primary school though but then i was about to join high school reality hit me hard . I had no school fees ,neither had i sponsor. I saw my hopes for a bright furure being dashed a way. At that point i was totally hopeless. Good enough my good grades were able to earn a sponsorship deal from a wealthy man in my village who offered to pay the whole high school fees. I am happy that my life was saved then and am realy gratefull for that man turning tables in my life

My name is Rebecca Sakwa. I am in Bondeni primary school in class seven. In 2001 i lost my father and was left with my mother. My father had been the main bread winner and so all hope had disipated and desparation took over. My mother's effort to bring up our family of 4 were unfruitful. Through the struggle life staggered on until my mother approached orphan child care home to help us. They were kind enough to allow one lucky beneficiary and that was me . I started enjoying the care and provision of basic needs in 2005 which revived my hope for the future. I am hopeful that with this support i will be able to finish std 8next year, joining high school and later more on to realize my dream of becoming a doctor. However this home is unstable and does not have permanent sponsors. I appeal to well wishers or a specific sponsor who can become my role model and sponsor

THERE IS HOPE FOR TOMORROW During the last days in high school there was a motivational speaker who came to Bungoma high school, in the year 2010,at third term. Though at the start of the session,it seemed humorous;but its conclusion,was absolutely humbling. His story began when he grew up in the streets,her mother being a prostitute;not that he wanted to but because of the upkeep of the motivational speaker and his brothers. Something that really touched me the most,is that his father also threw him in a pit latrine!For the sake of his safety,her mother had to leave. Her mother continued with this kind of horrible lifestyle,until she was diagnosed with HIV/AIDs,in the year 1999. Long story short,the most emotional part that made me shed tears was that her mother was placed to a room closed to the mortuary,since the virus had kept her mother into critical conditions;death or life. He told us he used to wash her,wastes and clothing where she slept until she succumbed. Narrating the story,I felt that he really missed her mom.the worst of all when he narrated this part of his story, he was in bitterness and sorrow on stage. But he left something that i will never forget. No matter where you come from ,your background,you can make matter what!he made me learn that; "................ The greatest legacy is not what you leave for people- 'BUT WHAT YOU LEAVE IN PEOPLE.

He took out his emotions on God,his poor relatives,friends etc. I had known Kizito from his birth since his parents had been my godparents and best friends with my single mother. I had taken a liking for the young boy and had tried to help him in any way i could. We being poor ourselves could not do much about his financial position but i decided to stick on his side even when he pushed me away. I talked to him,encouraged him to share his fears with me and slowly he found a friend in me with whom he could confine in. We encouraged him,my mother even took him to a councellor when she could afford it. He no longer felt abandoned and alone. He realised that we all cared for him,He is now fifteen years and in secondary school thats public. We all have expectations that rhis bright boy will be successful in his life

He later sat down and thought that the girls need education other than knowing who they are and what talents they have. He and some of his friends built a school in Kibera situated near the railway line a place commonly known as darajani. They named it kibera Girls Soccer Academy. It doesnt mean that only soccer players are in the school but also girls who cant afford to pay for high school fees and have scored higher marks. Not only do they provide high school education but also further studies if a girl scores c+ and above. And also some Job connections if you are through with your education.

High School Journalists In Kenya --- SONDU, KISUMU ( NEWS MEDIA
Kenyan journalist students are not secure. This is perhaps because they are still in school and under the control of the school in administration. They always face criticism and others end up being punished draconianly. Reason? Because of writing dirt in the school especially about teachers. The consequences are always unbearable. They have to go through all sorts of harassment, humiliation and face the wrath of the disappointed teachers. A good example is one which happened recently in my school. A journalist had written an article asking the school whether corporal punishment was back. The outcome was discouraging and devastating. The student was forcefully got out of the class and ordered to remove the article from the notice board. Later during class, teachers were sarcastic with the journalist. They spoke the opposite of what they meant. The incident gave a cold shoulder to other journalists in the school. They went on strike by stopping to write but then nobody paid attention to them. Really It is a high time that the freedom of the press should also be practised in schools

Light At The End Of The Tunnel --- CHEPTULU, KAIMOSI ( NO ANSWER
In my community at Bunyore Girls' High School, we value helping each other and bringing hope to the hopeless. It was the second term of our fourth year term of secondary or high school education. Since it was a school policy for the students to clear any fee balance or nay amount of money they owned the school,many students were sent home to bring the arrears. This was like an obvious thing to do but during our year it was not. One student was sent home to bring the arrears but two months down the line the student had not come back to school. It was later discovered that the student owed the school a large amount of money and she could not pay back the money by the date of the deadline. The class teacher, Mr. Makokha, sacrificed himself and urged the class to contribute any amount of money they had to help their colleague. The parents stopped in and contributed some money that was paid the students came back to school. Furthermore,Mr. Makokha helped the student to apply for a bursary and he is also one of the founders of "life-touch organization" in the school that contributes basic properties needed by a student in school and helps poor students feed comfortable and loved [in the school. Mr. Makokha taught us a remarkable lesson that will forever linger in our heart strings at whatever place we will live on this earth

Helping To Pay School Fees --- , KAKAMEGA ( ACCESS
Kevin mopesa is my friend whom we went with to the same primary school. He was always the best student in our class but it was so unfortunate he was an orphan.he was just staying with his grandmother. Life was unbearable to him,he was struggling all along when it came to accessing food,clothing and other basic needs. Time came when we did our final year in primary school after which he posted exemplary results. He was then called by a national high school. It was good news to our school for having sent someone to a national school since it's inception but it wasn't long when our happiness was cut short. The reason for this is that he did not have enough funds to pay his high school fees. Kevin saw his dreams cut short. However ,our former kindhearted headmaster led Kevin to a certain organization named ACCESS which gives a chance to poor students to access education. ACCESS heard his story and decided to pay his high school fees. They have been paying his school fees up to when he finished his final year,last year. Good enough,when the results were out he got an 'A' in everything and hopes to be a doctor in future. I thank ACCESS for helping him and many others
