Mandera disabled duo now ask for varsity scholarship

Two bright students living with disability are calling on well-wishers to come to their aid to join university after passing the just released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE.

Aalim Bash and Abdilatif Hassan who scored B plain and C+ respectively in 2018’s KCSE exams are now calling on well-wishers to assist in paying for their university education.

The duo completed their basic education at Dauwa integrated primary school in 2014 before joining Thika high school for the blind.

The two are interested in pursuing their university education but decry their families background, which are unable to support them.

Aalim and Hassan who wish to pursue degrees in banking and finance and education courses respectively received KCB Bank scholarship during their secondary education.

While speaking to this media in a remote village near Mandera town the two said they cannot afford paying for the university education and are now calling on Kenyans of goodwill to come to their aid.

Abdikadir, their mentor who’s also a teacher at Dauwa primary school in Mandera said he nurtured them properly throughout their education right from the primary.

Abdikadir who appealed to the government and well-wishers to assist the two said his school has four other bright blind students whom he wishes should also be assisted in their education endeavour in future.
