“PATHWAYS is a place to belong. The distance we have come since the conception of PATHWAYS, whom we have reached out to, and support from donors and scholars leaves us with a smile on our face as we work towards a better Kenya, if not the best.
“I strongly believe that PATHWAYS is set to make a turn around not only in Kenya but also in other developing countries. We have the potential and truly ‘PATHWAYS Yes we can’.”
As Eric said, most of us had real problems joining campus. I had worked as a teacher but had supported my younger sister to join another university. When my time came, I only had saved ksh. 20,000 which would cater for fare, fees, accommodation and upkeep. This needed more than ksh. 60,000. I thank God since the university couldn’t check my fees before admitting me. I had only paid ksh. 13,500. I missed a room. That meant I needed to rent one outside school. That would be another expense. I borrowed from every relative and friend. Only one of my brothers sent me ksh. 400. This could not help me. I opted to share beds in shifts with friends. I shared with my dean.
Just miraculously, he gave me the link to the application form for PW. I can’t compare anything I may give you with your support in my education. I had dropped three times. I was just afraid that I wouldn’t withstand the pressure.
You brought light in darkness. You brought life in death. Your support has kept me breathing.
I am not sure I can be grateful. I have much more to share.
