Dear Wonderful Generous Sponsors and Rotarians,
As of today we have raised scholarship money to support 35 students attending the Kiriani  Secondary School in Chogoria Kenya. The funds for the scholarships have come from individual Rotarian donors (thank you), $1,000 from Sunrise Rotary Club, friends and family.
We recently received an email from Timothy Nyaga, the Headmaster/Principal of the Kiriani School in which he indicated the following.
“I have never been so happy, Bev and Herb, and so blessed. No amount of words can appreciate this. Being able to sponsor 35 children is no mean achievement. I am extremely appreciative. We will be able to retain these children in school and help them do well. It is because of this retention that we have had our children do so well.”
In another recent email to us Timothy indicated that the Kiriani School placed 37th out of 100 schools taking the Kenyan National Exams. He indicated the following.
“Kindly you will find our school in the Daily Nation (Kenyan newspaper) of Tuesday March 4 [top 100 positions District schools].We are position 37 in Kenya. We have given many children hope in life, and now they can break the chains of poverty in their families. We are touching lives and we are so happy. This is wonderful news and an indication of how our scholarships are helping the students.”
Below are answers to one of our sponsor’s questions:
To respond briefly to this kind sponsor;
1.    The curriculum is designed by the central Government of Kenya for uniformity.
2.     Learners choose their subjects depending on their intended careers.
3.     The head teacher only ad vices and the career team in the school guides student on subject selection.
4.     We have access to the internet, but we currently only use the laptop you sent us, which has really served us well. The other desktop computer was put in the accounts office with a view of providing close financial monitoring.
Thank you for your continuing support. It is greatly appreciated.
Herb and Beverly Liberman
