Destitute boy appeals for help to join secondary school

A destitute boy in Oldorko, Mosiro in Kajiado West Constituency is appealing for financial help from well-wishers to help him join secondary school.

Dennis Kupai, son to an elderly widow, managed to score 359 marks at Oldorko Primary School in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) but he has yet to join secondary school due to financial constraints.

The boy who aspires to be a doctor secured a slot in Njoro Boys’ Secondary School in Nakuru, but his elderly mother who works as a casual laborer does not have the means to educate him further.

Kupai, though coming from a humble background, topped his class and was also the second-best-performing student in Mosiro ward.

“I have no sheep, cows, or goats under my name. All I do is wash clothes and do other casual jobs to put food on our table. I am appealing to anyone who can chip in to help admit him to secondary school. He was the best in his class and am sure he will change my situation once he gets an education,” appealed Ene Ole Koikai, Kupai’s mother.

Tom Ole Narok, a neighbour to the family, reiterates that Kupai is a bright hardworking boy who would change the family once he gets help.

He appeals to any well-wisher to help the elderly widow secure his son’s future.

To get in touch with the family, well-wishers can contact them through the mobile number 0708413489.
