Sponsorship Inspires

 Congratulations to Brenda, Bridget and Felista, graduates of Nyweri Primary School.  They did well on the national exams (KCPE) and learned recently that they will be able to attend secondary school with the support of new sponsors !  Parents and others at the school were excited to surprise the girls with the news.  Some students at Nyweri are so "desperate" they will never see the door of a secondary school. According to the head mistress, "Everybody was very happy and this left our pupils highly motivated and inspired to work hard. Feel most appreciated together with family and friends !"
