KES students at university

The success of all twelve of our KES students winning university places this year inspired us to have a look back. One illustration of the impact of your support is that at least 25 KES-sponsored students have gone on to higher education in Kenya, greatly increasing their own life chances as well as becoming role models and influencers.

We thought you might like to see what our students went on to study, as well as getting a picture of the great variety of Kenyan university degree courses.

So, here goes:

Edwin – Bachelor in Economics
Faith – Bachelor in Education (Science, Mathematics & Chemistry) – hooray! how great that she wants to teach
Martha, Michael and Elisabeth – BA Commerce
Peter Maina – Community Development
Samuel and Eliud – BSc Analytical Chemistry
Joseph – Journalism and Mass Communication
James Samuriah – Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance
Stephen Mwangi – Agricultural Science at Nairobi University
Lucy Mbaire – (pictured above) for her work with a village community on World Wetlands Day – Environmental and Community Studies
Martin – Development Studies with IT (and part-time DJ apparently – according to his social media posts!)
Nahashon – Science Statistics
Ann – Kiswahili Communications
Sammy – Business IT
Enoch – Nursing (an expensive and long degree course – Enoch is realising his dream in becoming a nurse)
Peter Kanuiki – Design at Technical University of Kenya
Esther – Social Sciences
Margaret – Veterinary Studies
James Wandutu – Marine Management
Lucy – BA Arts
Josphat – BSc Mathematics and Economics with IT
Rael – BSc Procurement and Contract Management

You can see how many of the courses are vocational and also that many of our students are involved in studies which are likely to be critical to Kenya’s environment and economy. We congratulate them all on their success and wish them all the best for the future.

And on their behalf, thank you, our supporters, for making their dreams a reality.
