This week, we wanted to introduce you to a few students who got the chance to receive Wildlife Works bursaries and what it means to them.
This is Joseph Mboya, an 18 year old student at Moi Boys High School in Kasigau, located in one of our project area. Joseph comes from a single parent family and is the second born in a family of four. His mother works as a farmer and cannot cater for his tuition and his siblings forcing him to stay at home because of lack of school fees. Now at form four, Joseph has been receiving wildlife works bursaries since form one.
“Thanks to Wildlife Works bursaries, Joseph i am confident of achieving my dream as an accountant. My favorite subject is Maths.”
All the best to you Joseph!
