Mercy Nelima, one of our sponsored students has been attending a boarding school called Musa Gitau since January. Musa Gitau is well known as one of the best primary schools in Nairobi and entry is very competitive. The school always ranks very highly on national exams and graduating students often receive scholarship and placement to national high schools, which is every primary school student's ultimate objective.
When students receive their mid-term and final exam results, they are told their exam score as well as their "position" in the class. As of the most recent mid-term exams, Mercy is now position one in her class! This is a tremendous feat considering Mercy's story and the competitive nature of the school. We are so proud of her and grateful to her sponsors for giving her the chance to shine.
