Nominated Senator Karen Nyamu has come through for seventeen needy students who were on the verge of failing to join secondary school.

The brights students who wrote their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations in 2023 will now further their education after sponsorship by the Education Endowment Program run by the Karen Nyamu Foundation.

The learners, drawn from Nairobi’s informal settlements of Mathare, Kibra, Korogocho, Kiambiú, Mukuru kwa Njenga, and Dandora will join their dream schools on four-year full scholarships.

Also included in the sponsorship are full uniforms, shopping, and admission to their respective secondary schools.

The Senator met with the beneficiaries at the Senate buildings where she vowed to be a parent to them, mentoring them and providing for their educational needs through the foundation.

“I’m very happy for allowing me to impact your lives; from today, even if you have parents, it’s as if I’m your adoptive parent who will mentor you.

“I wanted to expose you to this (Senate) setup so that it can impact you differently; you cannot be the same as another student who has not been here…now you can dream to be here or better.” Karen Nyamu explained.

She committed to walking the full length of their secondary school life with them, adding that she will be visiting them to check on their progress.

I wanted to reach out to that student whose dream could not come to pass without such an opportunity, Congratulations for your scholarship and for excelling in your studies.
