We love to celebrate our students' success! Read about the sweet stories of hope below and check back soon for more success stories.
I come from a large family of eleven children and I am the fourth born. My parents are financially unstable and needy.
In 2009 I started high school at Chuluni Girls. The Charles Musyoka Matuku Foundation stepped in to help with paying for my tuition, room and board. After joining the university, the loan I was getting for tuition was not enough. The foundation would top up the balance and provide for other needs like rent, food, and medication.
I completed my four-year degree program and graduated with a Bachelor of Education. I'm very appreciative for the support I received from the foundation. Because of their generosity, I was able to concentrate on my studies and do well in school.
My name is Minnie Ntinyari Mbaabu, a beneficiary of the Charles Musyoka Matuku Foundation.
I come from a family of four. My father abandoned us when I was seven years old and my mother became the breadwinner. He completely refused to give us any kind of financial support.
My mother relies on farming and the area we live is dry and arid. Rains are very unreliable and the piece of land we own is no longer fertile after many years of farming. Consequently, she could not afford my school fees.
The foundation started paying my tuition, room and board since I was a freshman in high school until I completed college. I have just graduated from Kenyatta University with a Bachelor of Environmental Planning and Management.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to go to school without worrying about school fees and be able to realize my dream.
I’m a living example that dreams still come true.
