Peter is academically potential.
He is currently in form 1 at St Peters Makunda where he shows extraordinary academic potential. He does extra ordinarily well in mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography, agriculture and business studies. He has shown impressive results despite the obvious challenges that he faces in life. He is however hugely in arrears and cannot be allowed in school any longer. Timely sponsorship is the only hope for Peter. Without support, he will not achieve his dream of making it in life through education and pulling himself and the siblings out of extreme poverty.
For 434 USD annually, Peter has a chance to be in school.
It costs Kenya shillings 44300 (USD 434) annually to support Peter through secondary education. Considering the huge arrears that he still has in school, he would need a four year support to be through with his secondary education.
