John was admitted to Kakamega High School which is one of the best Secondary Schools in Kenya. His financial status could not allow him to attend a good School that he thought was too expensive.

Mukhere is orphaned.
John khajula mukhere is a total orphan living with the paternal Uncle Joseph Ajwala in Bondo. He was born to Nicholas Mukhere and Beatrice Atieno who are both deceased. His siblings include 24 year old Linda Atieno, 22 year old Kevin Ouma currently in college, 20 year old Juline Akinyi, 18 year old Priscah Achieng, and 12 year old David Otieno.
The guardian is a fish monger earning USD 4 on a good day.
The uncle depends on odd jobs to put food on the table. He earns Kenya shillings 400 on a good day from selling fish. Apart from Mukhere and the siblings, the uncle has other dependents including 24 year old Victor Adhiambo Ajwala who should be joining college and 15 year old Priscar Akinyi Ajwala who is a form 1 student.
Mukhere is extra ordinarily bright.
He went to Mageta Primary School where he has an outstanding academic record. He was not just the best student regionally but among the best nationally in the National Primary School Examinations. Following his extraordinary performance in a Primary School that is among the lowliest rated, the boy was admitted to Kakamega High School which is one of the best Secondary Schools in Kenya. Mukhere’s financial status could not allow him to attend a good School that he and the siblings thought was too expensive. He later joined Got Agulu Secondary School where he is currently in form 2 and has shown extraordinary academic potential. He is hugely in arrears at Got Agulu Secondary School. He is almost always home for fees. Despite his repeated absence from school, he none the less remains to be the best student in his class. He literally tops in every exam he does. Without sponsorship he has no chance at school whatsoever. Given his potential, this boy will likely thrive academically to become a responsible employable adult in future.
For USD 546 annually, Mukhere has a chance to access Secondary education.
It costs Kenya shillings 55721 annually to support him. In consideration of the Kenya shillings 5000 that the government gives every year for mukhere’s school fees, He will need a three year support to accomplish secondary education.
