Our scholar family is growing! Welcome 2014 EK scholars.
Saturday 4th January was a very big day for Organic Health Response and the Ekialo Kiona Center. Parents and scholars were overjoyed and could not believe that their sons/daughters had qualified to be among the few lucky ones to be supported through the EK Scholarship program.
One student, Calvin, was flanked by his mother and grandfather. The old man could not believe such a noble program existed in Mfangano Island. He declared in the Suba Language,
“It’s my first time to be here at Ekialo Kiona. I have heard so much about this center, but today, I have walked to this place [over 25 kimometres] to witness the wonderful development programs they have brought in this community. I can’t believe it, may God grant you wisdom and long life to continue supporting this community.”
The five newly enrolled scholars got the opportunity to meet the four old students who were enrolled in the program from 2013. Our family of scholars grew from four to nine. We feel that this is a remarkable increase in just two years of this program’s development.
