Emmanuel joined the program in 2010. Having to pay for his education as a child was a tremendous challenge for his family. Friends of Ngong Road gave Emmanuel a sponsor and enabled him to continue his academic career.
Emmanuel was transferred to one of our focus elementary schools immediately after being admitted to the program, which he considered a far better school than his previous school. After completing his primary education, he attended a boys boarding school in Nairobi, where he completed his secondary education and joined the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. His graduation was originally scheduled for November last year but was postponed to July this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Emmanuel has a Business Administration Certificate and a University certification in Business Information Technology. Emmanuel is currently interning at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation as a tech intern.
