Samual was born into a nomadic life in northern Kenya. His parents are nomadic pastoralists and move throughout Turkana, West Pokot and Samburu county. They did not believe in education, so Samual bravely took it upon himself to go away to a boarding school and worked as a custodian to support his education, room and board. His PATHWAYS project is a hotel with proceeds used for support and mentor students.
Samual says, “My colleagues (fellow students) nicknamed me ‘Mboch wa chuo’, mboch, meaning school maid. It was so much embarrassing but I had no option. It was the only hope for my education to continue.”
