THE STORY:

*****We have 2 scholarships funded - Let's raise $8K more for 2 more scholarships******

Amanda and I have become heavily involved with MWCT. We both strongly believe in all levels of education, so we're preparing to visit Kenya next year to teach in one of the schools, as well as meeting the Maasai.

Through the efforts of MWCT the pupils enrollment rates in primary schools has significantly increased but the transition rate to secondary schools is still very low. This is because most of the parents cannot afford to pay secondary school fees. MWCT noted this as a major drawback to the future lives of the kids and started the secondary school scholarship program in the year 2006. In total 24 students have benefitted from the program with 7 of them having successfully completed their secondary school education while 17 are still studying at different stages.

We therefore have a great need in the area of scholarships. We would like in the future to have guaranteed scholarships every year. We currently have no regular donor in this area. To be precise we have not yet got a scholarship pledge for next year!

Right now, our goal is to create a scholarship pledge for the pupils needing it to complete secondary education. We want to fund 2 scholarships which pay for the next 4 years of their education. Who knows, maybe we can fund more.

To encourage children to go to high school after eighth grade, MWCT awards four year merit scholarships to the best students based on results of a standard exam given in the eighth grade. Offering these scholarships has been extremely beneficial to the students who receive them, and allows them an opportunity for the continuation of education that most Maasai cannot afford.This means that most students stop attending school after the eighth grade.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. - Nelson Mandela
