College bound!

Andrew, one of SYEF’s first-ever scholarship recipients, recently started his first term of college at Eldoret University in western Kenya.   Many years ago, Andrew was one of a cadre of young people in Samburu who inspired SYEF founders to start the organization. He would work tirelessly on homework, and after completing his homework, asked for more story problems, multiplication worksheets and other homework so he could continue learning. He was around 11-12 years old at the time.  Following his completion of secondary school in November 2013, he was awarded a government scholarship to college for his high marks on Kenya’s required national secondary school exam.  In early September, he made the 15 hour journey to Eldoret and began classes, with an intent to major in a science discipline.  Congratulations, Andrew!
