Magdaline Akinyi

I lost my father at the age of 13. I was deeply hurt and confused. My father was buried in the same year I sat for my final primary school national exams, I knew I had to make my late father proud of me, my mother was still hurting, I had to give her, at least a reason to smile. I worked hard and managed to score 399 marks out of the possible 500 marks. We were over the moon because of the sterling performance but reality soon dawned on us; we lacked the funds for my secondary school education. My father had always been our provider and my mother, being a primary school teacher at the time and singly supporting my two older siblings who were also in secondary school had her pay slip greatly overstretched. She could barely support my siblings who were in high school and I also had to go to school, come what may. My mother approached a good number of government offices in vain; none of them was philanthropic enough to fund me through Secondary school. We were losing hope and time was not on our side as other students were already going to school as I waited for funds.

Two weeks after other students had already joined Lugulu Girls’ High School, my mother explained to me; amid sobs- she couldn’t believe it. She had met a possible organization, Our Lady of Perpetual Support (OLPS), the director; Sister Anastasia Juma was more than happy to fund me through High school, thanks to my good performance. They wanted to have an interview with me and have a couple of photos to make it official. I was going to secondary school!

OLPS fully supported me in my four years in high school. My school fees were always paid in good time and I was always given text books for various subjects. The education office always kept me in check incase my performance dropped in any way and for that I will always be grateful.

At the end of my four years in Lugulu Girls, I managed to attain a mean aggregate of ‘B’ of 66 points out of the possible 84 points, I then joined Moi University, Eldoret.

I joined Zawadi Africa Education fund, a non- governmental organization aimed at supporting bright and needy students through colleges in the US. I managed to get a scholarship to Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin via Zawadi Africa. I am going to double major in pre-medicine and business administration.

In the mean-time, my mother and I are trying to raise funds for my air-ticket, pocket money and clothes- especially winter clothes to ensure a smooth transition to college.

When one really wants something, the universe will conspire to make it happen. The OLPS staff and Zawadi Africa did it for me. I thank God daily for his mercies upon my life and the huge blessings that these organizations have been to me.

I believe that what we are is God’s gift to us and what we become is our gift to God, I intend to be the best I can be.
