Two bright needy pupils from Homa-Bay County are appealing to well-wishers to support them in their dreams to join secondary school.
Ebby Atieno scored 376 marks at Kamasi Primary School, while Koffi Anan, who sat for his exams at Agoro Sare Primary school, scored 363 marks.
Ebby was selected to join Asumbi Girls national school but she is stranded at home to date.
The girl's mother Caroline Awuor who is a peasant farmer and resident of West Kanyatodo location in Ndhiwa Sub-county said she could not raise Ksh71,000 which is required for her daughter to secure admission in the school.
“I have tried all possible means but I failed. I am still stranded with my daughter at home. I appeal to well-wishers to come to my aid,” Awuor said.
Ebby, 14, pleaded with well-wishers to help her achieve her dream of becoming a medical doctor.
On the other hand, Anan was called to join Ratang’a Boys Secondary school in Ndhiwa Sub-county but he has not joined Form One due to his parent's inability to pay the required school fees.
His father Erick Mulanga, a resident of South Alego location in Siaya County, said he has tried all possible avenues to raise the required fee of Ksh Ksh56, 000 without success.
“My business of selling herbal drugs was adversely affected by Covid-19. I have not recovered,” said Mulanga further calling on well-wishers to intervene.
“May anyone help me support my son’s education."
Annan hopes to become an engineer after completing his studies.
“The main obstacle to my dream is school fees. May well-wishers help me achieve my dream,” the boy pleaded.
