Ruth Njeri a  15  year old who  sat  her  KCPE last year and whose  hopes  of  joining form one had  been cut  short due to lack of school fees, will finally be joining Kamagut Girls ,a  school of her  choice after a  well-wisher promised  to see her  through the four years of study.

Ruth’s desolate  situation was highlighted by Hubzmedia  four weeks  ago, after she was spotted doing manual chores of  washing clothes and utensils for a fee of  Sh50 around Maili nne  area in the outskirts of  Eldoret town.

Hon. Kimani Wanjohi, Huruma Ward Member of  County assembly-  notes her story though sad and heartbreaking demonstrated an undefeated motivation to fulfill her dream in education, that of earning a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion and design at Moi University.

“I saw her  story on Hubzmedia platform,She had  only  saved Sh 1,000 in three months , she  would have  needed Sh 40,000 to join Form one, I wondered how long it would  take  her to attain that much , but  her  determination wins my heart  the reason today I visited her home with a  letter  of  admission to her  school of  choice”He  said.

Ruth, who  attained 301 marks in last year’s Kenya certificate of  primary Education,had  her hopes in God that he  would be sending her  an angel to support  her  education quest,a prayer answered.

“This is my most happy moment in Life,finding work was not  easy many said I was underage,somehow deep in my heart I trusted in God to see me through my Education ,no one offered me  a bursary we were once chased at the Ministry of Education offices  Eldoret as we sought their help, they did not want to listen to my mother, amidst all the  challenges  God has done it!”She opined bursting with joy

“In our prayers as a  family we always ask God  to send  us his angels,today I saw one at my home ,my life  will not be  the same  again ,washing peoples  clothes is not  an  easy job, lately the harsh economic times have left people with nothing to spare, I would  only  get a  job once or twice  a  week if lucky” She  narrates.

Ruth Njeri will be joining Kamagut Girls on Monday where her  four year High school education journey begins.
