Congrats to our newest graduates!
During challenging times it can seem like we've run out of any good news, but we've got some and are happy to share it with you! On September 25, two our our Post-Secondary Scholars graduated from their programs!
Big congratulations to Daniel Shiraku Akoi who graduated from the University of Nairobi with a BSc. in Biology and Daniel Onyango Shitandi who graduated from the University of Nairobi with a BSc. in Chemistry.
Along with this great news we wanted to share a few words our graduates sent along to the CMETrust community.
Daniel Shiraku Akoi:
"Being part of CMETrust family has been a blessing to me, and I have learnt a lot of things concerning life through the holiday program activities. Hence this has helped me to handle daily life encounters wisely. As well as not forgetting the interactive sessions I had with the Kenya field reps, the facilitators, fellow scholars and other friends to the organization.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for your support during my education journey."
Daniel Onyango Shitandi:
"I am scripting this letter to convey my honest and genuine gratefulness and appreciation for the support that you have given me both in the field of academics and the field of life. The scholarship was priceless and will definitely help me in my life endeavours, as it has equipped me with the skills in the field of academics and also some of the basic concept on how to handle life.
The monetary help that you gave me enabled me to to pay my learning cost without a single problem and this enabled me to devote most of my time to feed on books and drink knowledge."
Once again a big congratulations fo out graduates and a huge thank you to all of our donors, who make our scholarships, and these opportunities possible.
