Knowledge is power

Meet Anderson…

a young man who is about to finish his Secondary Education at Moi Forces Academy in Nairobi at the end of this year. He has been supported by Kesho through Secondary School. “If I hadn’t gotten the Kesho sponsorship I would not have gone to a National School. In search for school fees I would have missed school or may not even have finished Secondary school.”

 

He is a talkative young man with a clear vision for the future. “Depending on my grades I would like to study mechanical engineering; as a second option I can also see myself studying IT.”

Many of his Primary School mates did not continue with Secondary Education. “I am still in touch with them. Some of them work as ‘boda boda’ drivers and some are already married and have families. They encourage me a lot to continue with school and some even say I should become the next governor.”

 

He is very open and not afraid to speak his mind. “The society has not done its best in terms of leadership. Some people see the coastal communities as being lazy. True or not; some people don’t think of tomorrow or about others. I would like to change that attitude. Education is really important; it is the way to get information and knowledge is power.”
