Shadrack Otieno

I would like to give you a brief history on my background and my achievements through OLPS' Scholarship program. I was born in a family of 10 children made up of 5 boys and 5 girls. I am the second last borne in this family. Four of my siblings have since passed on, i.e. two girls and two boys.OLPS came to my rescue in 2003 when I had just cleared my primary education and life for me was a living hell. Things for me were complicated by the fact that I and my last borne brother had a different father from our other siblings which had prompted our elder brothers to disown us and they really resented us but we could not go anywhere since our biological father had died and our mother had also passed on when I was in class five in 1998. I was forced to drop out of school in class six for about two months but my elder sister whom I considered as my mum came and took me to Kisumu where a man I respect so much called Mr. Paul Kaunda agreed to enroll me in his school and he was to be paid on a monthly basis since my sister was HIV positive at that time and was constantly sick and had no stable source of income.

It was while at this primary school that I worked so hard and whenever I thought of how I had been disowned by my brothers I worked even harder and Mr. Kaunda had faith in me and always called me in his office from time to time to encourage me. He believed that nothing could stop me from being the best and he even allowed me to attend school without paying fee when my sister’s condition got worse.

I did my standard 8 examination and emerged the best in my school and among the best in the country scoring 423 marks out of a total of 500 in the national examinations. I couldn’t join high school because money was a problem but God brought me Sister Anastacia whom nowadays I see as a God sent mother to me. Mr. Kaunda introduced me to OLPS and they reviewed my case and paid my fee enabling me to join one of the best high schools in the country and when I convinced them that I could still perform better even in high school they enrolled me into their program fully. Unfortunately my sister passed on in 2004.

I finished my high school in 2006 and they still supported me through the university where I did my degree program in business management:purchasing and supplies management option which I finished in April, 2012 and I am due to graduate in December. For sure I have more than a thousand reasons to thank OLPS for making me who I am today. Actually, I am a living testimony of OLPS' vision and mission. I have met so many brothers in OLPS who were once like me but have been transformed into educated and responsible people.

Thank you so much. May God shower you with his many blessings.
