Samuel is 23 years old studying for a degree in medicine and surgery at the University of Nairobi. He is the first born in a family of two children. Samuel and his brother were left orphaned after the death of their parents while Samuel was just five. He was identified by one of our local community groups as deserving of support, and we got him onto our scholarship programme at a tender age. Samuel did exceptionally well at his final year exams, finishing 48th out of 417,000 students nationally. In 2013, and with the continued support of our scholarship donor, Samuel started on medicine at the University of Nairobi.
Samuel is nearly done, but we need your support in his last year of study. Read how to support Samuel here.

2018 promises to be another busy year for us. With generous support from Dioraphte, a Dutch foundation supporting social initiatives, we will scale up our community-based orphan care and support activities in Lugari. This includes providing women's groups with much needed capital and training to set up social enterprises. The project also supports the continuation of our sports and health education activities and young carers clubs.

Rebecca is 24 years old. Both of her parents passed away due to illness when she was in primary school. Rebecca and her younger siblings moved in with their grandmother, who is in a wheelchair and in need of care and support. Due to the limited means of their household, Rebecca could not continue onto secondary school. She was admitted to our scholarship programme 2010 and graduated successfully, achieving the grades required to attend university. We have until now supported Rebecca through her BA in Education and IT at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology.
