I am young female lawyer who was born and brought up in Siaya. I value Education so much and have recently completed my PhD in Law. My primary school life was challenging, walking six kilometers everyday to quench my thirst for knowledge and a lack of enough learning materials to just mention a few. I believe that these obstacles motivated me to work extra hard and pass well enough to join one of the best girls schools in Siaya. My resilience in education got a notch higher in secondary school and after the four years, I joined the University of Nairobi to pursue Law. I strongly believe in education as a huge contributor to make an individuals life better, hence the idea to start SEP came up in my mind. My main objective was to change the world, one child at a time, by supporting as many students as possible through secondary school. We do this at SEP because economic empowerment is tied to education without which it is very difficult to break the vicious cycle of poverty. If parents are poor and children do not go school, it is likely that the children will be poor and not send their children to school, thus the inter-generational poverty will be perpetuated. Supporting one child to school is an attempt to break this vicious cycle. The one child who goes to school will take care of his or her siblings so that the next generation will be better than the last. My ultimate goal is to see SEP get to a level where no student in Siaya fails to attend school because of lack of school fees. The partnership between SEP and other government and non-governmental institutions would be a milestone too.
