Celebrated Kenyan professional footballer Victor Wanyama through the Victor Wanyama Foundation has awarded secondary school scholarship to six needy students.

Through his twitter page, the footballer revealed that following the 48 applications they had received, the foundation had decided to award Secondary School Scholarships to needy students after careful vetting based on merit and need.

The scholarship will cover tuition fees, boarding and other related expenses for the four year period that they will be in school.

I wish to congratulate the sic successful applicants and most definitely visit all of you in your new schools when I come back home. This is a good opportunity for you to work hard without any distractions and I would like to urge you to seize and make it count. All the best as you begin this journey,” said Wanyama.
