Despite government capitation towards affordable education, the cost of education remains high in Kenya.
The cost is even heavier for those whose children are joining High School.
For Mw Charles Abich, a KEWOTA member, and Person Living With Disability ( PWLD), it is not a walk in the park. With meagre income and nine children in school, three of whom are orphans belonging to his late brother, one only wishes that the situation is better but, they are not.
“I had given up and lost hope of taking my son to Kapsabet Boys where he was called after scoring 396 marks,” he said.
“However,” he added, “when I contacted the CEO of KEWOTA Benta Opande , she did not hesitate to send a coordinator to Ndhiwa Primary where I teach to confirm the situation.”
And yesterday, Eddy Otieno was all smiles after KEWOTA settled in full the first terms fees and will on Monday be among the hundreds of children who will be joining Kapsabet Boys
