Savina is a brilliant girl from
Tharaka Nithi County in Eastern Kenya. She lives with his both parents two brothers and three sisters. Her parents are peasant farmers and they grow crops such as millet, sorghum and pigeon peas. Unreliable rainfall leads to low farm yields hence hardly bringing in substantial returns to support the family. They hardly get yields that can sustain the family from one season to another. Their annual income is less than 324 US Dollars, which barely gets them out of poverty. Owing to the hardships they face every day, his mother sought assistance from our office.

Savina was enrolled into the scholarship project initiated by Professor Gunther Schmidt in 2009 after scoring high marks in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education. The scholarship project is meant to assist bright orphaned and vulnerable children by paying for them secondary school fees for the whole year. Through this initiative, Savina was enrolled in Form one at Kajiuduthi High School and was able to complete her secondary education successfully in 2012 and she scored Grade B+ in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination .In the year 2013 she was admitted in Maseno University where she is pursuing a Degree course in Nutrition.

I am grateful for the support i received since i was in high school” Says Savina.
