EK Scholar Secures Spot in University

Our First Scholar Makes us Proud!

Last year saw our first batch of scholars sit their KCSE exams. On Tuesday this week, we all anxiously awaited their results after the Ministry of Education finally released the same.

As she had promised the scholarship committee in a meeting early last year, Sallah Beryll kept her promise by scoring B- (Minus) with very strong points to guarantee herself a slot for direct admission into the University. This was a very positive and encouraging news which dominated the headlines at EK Center for three days in a row!

Sallah scores top in her class, securing a permanent spot in University!

This is how Sallah performed:- English B-, Kiswahili B-, Mathematics D, Biology C+, Chemistry B-, Business Studies B-, History and Government B- and Christian Religious Education A-. Mean Grade B-Minus.

“I could not have achieved this without the support from OHR/EK center’s Scholarship Program. My dream to join University and pursue medical course is now a reality. I have always wished to save lives. Now it’s very crystal clear, I will one day save lives.” She said with smiles of triumph all over her face.

For Flevian Michael Ogweno, another first of EK’s scholars, her performance faired a bit lower due to serious challenges she faced with her former school which forced her to relocate last minute to a different school. She however managed a mean grade of C- (Minus).We’ll send out her performance per subject once we have them.

Many thanks to all the stakeholders who have worked either directly or indirectly to support the Ekialo Kiona Scholarship Program. These young ladies are proof that your support can move mountains. Congratulations scholars!
