Daisy Atieno scored 412 marks in the 2019 KCPE and was confident that she would join a good school.

She got admission to Asumbi Girls High School but could not pay school fees.

Luckily, her story was highlighted on television and she got help almost immediately.

On Tuesday, Bishop Allan and Kathy Kiuna of JCC promised to take care of her fees and ensure that she completes her high school education.

“Our new adopted baby, Daisy Atieno. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for her. She was elated to get an opportunity to go to school.

“Glory to God in the highest,” wrote Kathy.

Atieno, who wants to be a lawyer after school, said that she was worried she would not make the transition to high school but she is elated that she now has a chance to pursue her dreams.

This comes just a few days after well-wishers helped Hesbon Wabwire, 16, join Maseno School.

The boy, determined to start his high school journey, woke up one morning and walked from Matayos, Busia County to Maseno, approximately 75km.

Armed with only his admission letter, Hesbon set off for school hoping he would convince the management to admit him.

Dressed in a shirt, tattered shorts and slippers, the boy waited at the school gate and by luck came across a well-wisher who shared his story online.

So many people were touched by his determination and pledges started streaming in.

By the end of the day he was dressed in complete school uniform, his school fees had been paid and had been admitted to form one.
