An orphan from Bokimonge Kisii County is on the verge of missing out on joining Bishop Mugendi Nyakegogi secondary due to lack of school fees.
Charles Kigoncho sat for his 2022 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) in Riyabu primary, where he attained 310 marks. Charles, while speaking to a local YouTuber Mary Esther claimed he expected to get more marks, but this was not possible because of fee challenges he has been facing all along.
“I sat for my KCPE exams in Riyabu primary school and managed to score 310 marks, I expected to get at least 400 marks, but this was not possible since I was out of class due to lack of school fees,” Charles said.
The young boy born in a family of three has been living with his sick grandmother since 2019 when he lost his dear mother to chronic disease.
“I have been living with my grandmother since 2019 when I lost my mother, who had long been battling a chronic disease. My mother never showed us our father. We have been raised by my grandmother, who does menial jobs to feed us.” recalled Charles.
Charles is now calling on well-wishers to help him join Bishop Mugendi Nyakegogi secondary school to continue with his education, and he hopes to become a doctor after school so that he can also sponsor needy students to pursue their dreams.
