Thank you for all your generous donations! Any further donations will be saved up for next year's school fees.

I am a small-scale farmer and father of nine children in Mutomo, Kenya. I loved school when I was young, but I never got to go to secondary school as my family was lacking the money. I dream and pray that things will be different for my children. I know that education is crucial for their future and for the future of my country. And as climate change is challenging our way of living as farmers through droughts and floods it is becoming increasingly important with education to find ways to adapt to climate change and also for some of my children to find other kinds of jobs. 

Eight of my children are in the age of schooling and doing very well, and I am very proud to say that my second oldest daughter Serah is in University. She is the first one in our family to go to university. Just like me my daughter Serah wants to fight for climate justice and be part of building climate-resilient communities, so she has chosen to study Environmental Science and Agriculture at Egerton University. She is now in her second year with the goal of becoming a technician farmer, where she can guide other farmers on climate mitigation and adaptation techniques. My daughter Esther wishes to become a teacher and will be pursuing this goal when she finishes secondary school in 2021. My six younger children are doing well in early secondary school and primary school. 

Unfortunately, education is extremely expensive and I am struggling to cover the fees for all of my children. Covid-19 has given us new challenges, as the schools have been closed down for a long time. Esther was supposed to graduate from secondary school in 2020, and Isaac was supposed to finish his second year, but because of the closed schools they will need to do the whole school year over again. I have tried to save up as much as possible for the schools fees, but I am still lacking some money to cover the fees for secondary school (Esther, Isaac and Mercy) and for university (Serah). The school fees for all of them cost 1720$ and I am now lacking 570$ of this. I’m happy to say that I have saved up enough to cover the total expenses for four of my children who are in primary school. Now I am asking for support to ensure that my four oldest children can continue their secondary and higher education.

The amount already raised in the previous year was spent on the fees that were due in December 2019, and I am grateful to everyone who supported this. Thank you. The fees for the next school year are due in late December 2020, and I pray that I will have enough by then. Therefore I am asking you for help as my heart as a father would hurt if I would have to turn my children down and take them out of school. 

My children, wife and I will be grateful for every contribution, big or small. Thank you!
