“I am so grateful for this kind gesture by Kenyans. My prayer is that they continue in the same spirit, because assisting someone get an education goes along way.” Ms. Achieng told Nairobi News.
Joyce Achieng recounted her predicament after her two daughters passed their exams; Juliet Akinyi (KCSE, A) and Beryl Auma (KCPE, 372 marks). The family of four from Kiandutu slum in Kiambu county were struggling to raise school fees for one of their daughters- Beryl.
Beryl’s hope of joining high school however seemed lost due to lack of school fees. She however regained her hope when her sister, Juliet Akinyi , sent an appeal to well-wishers to support her. Few days after the appeal, online funds drive campaigner Ndungu Nyoro set up a campaign on donations based crowdfunding platform M-Changa where the campaign surpassed its Ksh. 300,000 target by over Ksh. 50,000.
