Mellarny

This year we are providing scholarships to two additional students, Mellarny and France. Under the Ewaso Lions scholarship, school tuition is covered for four full academic years.

Students here often finish primary school but lack the funds to attend secondary school. Families are struggling more nowadays to send their children to secondary school after the severe and prolonged 2009 drought, which killed most of their livestock. Normally, parents send their children to school by selling a few cows to pay for fees and uniforms. However, at t...
