Sponsorship Praise God we have received our first sponsorship, which one child has received. He is six years old and is in standard one. He is our first member to receive the scholarship. He doesn’t know how to read yet but the mother has offered to read for him one story book every night untill he gets to know how to read.
NB: We are in dire need of more scholarships. Such Scholarship will enable more children get an opportunity read story books to improve their English grammar and communication skills.
Gemsbak Library Services as an arm of Pendo Machakos Chapter Community Based Organization offers scholarships to bright youths who have performed well in their national exams from these poor families in Machakos district, and who cannot afford to continue with education due to lack of finances. Pendo comes in to help facilitate these bright students to have access to higher education in high schools, colleges and universities through scholarships. The primary aim is to help in alleviating poverty in this region through knowledge and skills empowerment, which will in turn have an effect in changing the attitude of young people and their parents towards education. We believe knowledge is power.
Our goal is to extend an invitation to those who are passionate as we are in alleviating physical as well as knowledge poverty to partner with us in this noble venture. We pray that God would raise donors and continue to bless those who have already come on board to make this a reality to the young and youths in this poor areas of Machakos District.
