The two who were students at Werus Academy, overcame all odds to score 423 and 406 marks respectively, in last year’s KCPE. Ngonyo also emerged the best female candidate in Embu County. Speaking during the flagging off of the 13 students, Alice who was admitted to Alliance Girls’ was overcome by joy, narrating how she lived a destitute life in Juja, Kiambu County before a well-wisher took her to the home run by the Embu ACK church.

 

“My mother could not take care of me and I was brought up by my great-grandmother. I was really struggling since my goal is to succeed in life. I promise to do well,” she said.

He also revealed the scholarship will cater for fees, books, shopping and pocket money. “We had several home visits which were conducted for three consecutive days to establish the degree of need,” he said.
