WEF to hopes to sponsor more students in the coming years. In 2015, WEF pioneer student, Rose performed exceptionally well enough to get admitted at the University.
WHY THE FUND IS IMPORTANT
Education standards in Taita/Taveta county have been in a general decline in the recent past, despite the introduction of free primary education and subsidised secondary education.
Many bright young people from the community have not been able to join high school, either due to ignorance, or due to lack of funds. Through the spirit of community and sponsorship from other individuals, WEF would be in a better financial position to sponsor more students.
