Emmanuel joined the program in 2010. Having to pay for his education as a child was a tremendous challenge for his family. Friends of Ngongroad gave Emmanuel a sponsor and enabled him to continue his academic career.
Emmanuel was transferred to Jagiet Academy immediately after being admitted to the program, which he considered a far better school than his previous school. After completing his primary education, he attended Pumwani High School where he completed his secondary education and joined the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. His graduation was originally scheduled for November last year but was postponed to April this year because of the Covid pandemic.
Emmanuel holds a Certificate in Business Administration and a University Diploma in Business Information Technology. Emmanuel is currently interning at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation as a tech intern.
Lorine, sister of Emmanuel, was admitted to the program earlier than her brother. It was fortunate for both of them to have the same sponsor.
Lorines’ success story is inspiring and uplifting. As a member of the Friends of Ngong Road family, Lorine started her academic journey at Jagiet Primary School. She later did her secondary studies at St Mary’s Thiago.
She holds a certificate in Business Administration, a University diploma in Business Administration, as well as a Bachelor of Commerce with a Finance concentration from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.
Lorine has made steady progress in her professional life. She participated in the Ngong Road Youth Peer Provider and Sexual and Reproductive Health Program, and she interned at Karibu Loo as an associate. She is currently employed by the British East African Tobacco Company as part of their finance team.
