I am Edward Njuguna Muhia and I attend Kiamwangi High School. I am 18 years old and in form #3. (11th grade). I want to thank you and all your colleagues once again for the support and help you have given me in my education at this level of high school. I continue to pray that I will pass with good grades and be able to attend the University. God bless you all. Amen.
Yours faithfully, Edward Njuguna
I wish to apply for a scholarship through your generosity in education funds. I completed class eight last year and received high marks at the age of 14 years old. Although I would like to continue my education, my mother cannot afford the school fees. She is single and jobless. She provides daily bread by earning some money from sewing clothes for people. We live in a rented house and we are unable to pay the rent regularly. I would appreciate your assistance. Thanking you in anticipation.
Yours faithfully, Hellen Wanjiru
Dear St. Olaf Parishioners,
I am Wanneru, James Kimani, I am 18 years old and I am in form three. I have taken this opportunity, happily to thank you for your generosity of paying for my previous school fees. It is very powerful to realize that if I could not depend on you, I would not be this far along.
I do give uncountable thanks from my heart. I do apologize for a few low grades. I have missed class from time to time because of family needs and sickness. My mother cares for the children and my father is a knitter of shoes. I do thank you for your generous hearts and I hope it will continue.
Yours faithfully, James Kimuni
I would like to take this golden opportunity to thank you parishioners, because of your wonderful assistance that you have offered to me. I can’t express the joy in my heart. It is because of your effort that I joined high school and now I am in form three. My parents who are not even capable of raising some of the basic needs could not have been able to raise my school fees. My brothers never went to high school since they had no fees.
Therefore, I don’t take this opportunity for granted simply because there are some who missed such a chance. May God continue giving you the ability and heart of giving. I promise to work extra hard so that my dreams of joining the university may soon come true.
May God shower you with His blessings always. May God keep you safe and expand your entire life. Thank you all!
Yours faithfully, Jane Waruiru
