Secondary School – Form 3
Samson’s scholarship was awarded after his school headmaster reached out to Asante Africa. His mother was killed in the Kenya political clash in early 2008 and his father was undergoing cancer treatment. Samson was sent to a refugee camp on the other side of the country, and lived there for nine months.
Samson’s headmaster now acts as his guardian to ensure that the young student remains focused on his studies and has everything he needs to do well in Secondary School. At the Asante Africa scholarship orientation, Samson shared his desire to be the “best lawyer that Kenya has ever witnessed” so that he can be a positive influence in his community, and so that people do not lose their lives to unnecessary strife and conflict. Samson believes that education is the key to a better life.
