Moline


Moline Awuor Ngar was born on 26th August 1994 in East kanyaluo Location in Rachuonyo North Sub-County. She is the last born in a family of seven.

Moline started school at Ongang Primary school in 1998. Her early education was hindered by frequent sending off from school because her father died when she was young and her mother was the sole bread winner catering for the needs of the entire family. In 2009, she changed school to Bongia primary school where she sat for her Kenya Certificate of primary education (KCPE) attaining 281 marks out of 500marks. Her hopes of joining form one was slim since none of her siblings has ever advanced to secondary school. The only option left to her was to get married just like her five sisters had done before. By good luck, she got an admission to the nearby Kowuor Mixed Secondary School a nearby day school and getting fee for her to join the school was a headache. Her mother, who has started a vegetable business in the nearby market after joining one of the Saving groups in the area, approached the school head teacher and nearby neighbors who supported her to join for one in the year 2010.

In the third year of her study, the project Tego OD Dayo “Strengthening the house of Nanny” launched a scholarship program targeting children of VSL group members. Moline was one of the beneficiaries because she met all the criteria and her fee for that year was fully paid by the project. In the following year 2013 she sat for her Kenya Certificate of Secondary education (KCSE) and attained grade C-.

Since then, she has been an active member of the Alumni whereby she has been attending regular meetings to discuss and share experiences with her other scholars. During these meetings, mentoring and key officers from the ministry of education and or health sensitize the scholars on various life skills. It also serves as an opportunity for the youth to share experiences which Moline has actively been engaging in.

Because of her hard work and passion for young children, she enrolled for a certificate course in Early Childhood Education (ECD) in Rachuonyo Teachers Training College in 2015 and she has managed to complete her certificate course which was supported by the Nielimishe Project and has decided to further her professional training by enrolling for a diploma course in the same institution. She is now a role model to other young girls within her community and also to her fellow scholars and anticipates empowering and supporting the girls within the community to reach the levels she has reached and beyond. The family of Moline are very excited because without the scholarship she could have not made it this far.
