My name is Renny Ochieng, a Kenyan citizen and also a beneficiary from your organization's sponsorship. I came into this programme of sponsorship in the year 2012-2019. Before the advent of the programme 'Giving Back to Kenya', I was a class eight leaver who had no future. My parents had passed away and I had no one to pay my school fees for further studies. In fact in our village, post-primary studies were regarded as a luxury and therefore I had no other option but to drop out of school. By the grace of God, Dr. Bethwel and the team got inspired and they launched the organization. I became the first beneficiary whereby I got enrolled in Bodi Mixed Secondary school for Form one from the year 2012 to 2015 at Form four. While in the school, I was catered for everything i.e. school fees, personal emoluments to mention but a few. I sat for my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in 2015 and scored a mean grade of B. I got accepted to join higher studies at Kisii University but still I couldn't make both ends meet. The organization again aided me to acquire higher education at the University level by paying part of my tuition fees.
At the University, I pursued a Bachelor degree in Education Arts where I graduated in the year 2021 with a merit of Second Upper Division. Currently, I work at St. Theresa's Nyangusu Girls as a BOM teacher. I want to thank GB2K for sponsoring me through my intellectual journey. I may not ever be able to say/show this enough to you, but thank you so much for your kindness, generosity and your works of charity will never go unappreciated. My life was full of darkness but now, the light has shone on me.
