If you relocated to USA from Kenya like me as a student, you very well know there is nothing like student loans from financial institutions in Kenya for people who want to come and study in USA…right?

You very well know that sometimes families have to do fundraisers to help raise college tuition for those coming to study abroad..Right?

BUT…………………..,

Did you know that most Indian students come to study in USA using student loans acquired while back in their country?…and are able to repay the same easily because they end up getting very well paying Jobs here in America especially in IT sector, whereas we struggle to find good jobs.

Did you also know that most Indian students know that they would become highly paid IT consultants making 6 figure salaries before they even land in USA?

Did you also know that majority of Indian students get immigration papers through employment whereas very very few Kenyan students are able to do the same?

I came to USA as a master’s student and I must say I have been very very lucky I never fell out of status as an Immigrant in this country.

BUT that is not usually the case to so many of us who come to this country as international students.

Today there are thousands and thousands of international students who came to USA like me but are currently residing here without any proper documentation and struggling to find good Jobs.

Since becoming an employer, I have had a lot of people come to me for counsel on Jobs & Immigration matters after falling out of status.

All the time, I have often felt helpless when someone is already out of status.

One of the MAJOR reasons why a lot of our students fall out of status is because they drop out of school for lack of finances to pay for their college tuition.

BUT did you know that there are private lenders out there that partner with some universities to provide international students with unsecured loans even before they set foot in USA?

Did you know that you can get up to $50,000 as international student loan without any collateral before you even set foot in USA?

A lot of people do not know about this!

Through Appstec America’s partnership with ABEDS Sacco, we came up with the KENYA AIRLIFT PROGRAM to address this need for our brilliant Kenyan brothers and sisters who wish to study in USA.

Through this amazing program, we are trying to solve this huge problem that a lot of students in our community face. i.e access to college education in USA, access to International student loans, graduate assistant-ship, student visa denials & other immigration matters, Job placement services after graduation among others.

This program is for those wishing to study masters degree in IT and scored at least a B+ in KCSE combined with a 2nd class upper division.

If you know anyone who you think may be interested in relocating to USA a student and who you think may be a good fit for this, please share with them this information.

Information is power!!

A lobby for Kenyans  in the diaspora is urging voters to reject the  Building Bridges Initiative report in the  referendum being championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Commonwealth Voter Privileges Right Association (COVPRA) the report is being imposed on Kenyans after the views of  certain groups and  elected leaders views were rejected..

Uhuru and Raila have rejected amendments to the final report saying those opposing it had time to give their views to the fourteen member committee they appointment.

 

The lobby avers that the recommendations in the final report do not represent the position of all Kenyans and a contested referendum would divide Kenyans.

“Kenyans should reject the BBI report. It is two man initiative that is being imposed on the people. The clergy have rejected it, several groups have rejected it. It’s not a Wanjiku Initiative. A few people and their surrogates want to change the Constitution for their personal gain,” Mr David Kimengere Waititu, the association’s Organising secretary told the Nation.

“It would have been  necessary to allow debate on all the issues that  arose in the final report  before coming  up with a bill. Kenyans are being taken for a ride,”  he said.

In June the group petitioned the committee  led by Garissa senator Yusuf Hajji to allow views from all dissenting voices saying all Kenyans should be allowed to participate.

“Freedom to Assembly, Freedom of expression and Freedom to political participation are so important in a  process like this one. It would be a sham  if the BBI Team was to ignore the views of some Kenyans. During the  meetings to sensitize the public on the initiative,” Kimengere said.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and civil society are opposed to some of the proposals in the final report.

The group says a contested referendum would leave the country divided.

“We do not want a process that would leave Kenyans more divided. Let all Kenyans reject this report in a referendum to save their country from a few people who think they own Kenya.  We in Covpra, have our motherland at heart,” he said.

 Covpra said that the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the hollo polloi and not it’s leaders.

“ We call upon the Kenyans poor not to buy to the schemes of the dynasties. Let us protect our country by rejecting this monster called BBI if it goes to the referendum.

The group said in a statement that Kenyans should reject plots by politician to engage in chaos.

“At the end, this might result to   a badly contested referendum and  create a poisoned society ahead of the 2022 general elections. Let’s refuse any incitement to violence and stand up against the dynasties to shape the future of Kenya,” he says.

In their June petition, the group cited the strained relations between the Executive and the Judiciary and the fall out in the ruling Jubilee party over the process as a matter of concern.

“Our position stands that there is no proposal  to fix the simmering tensions between the two arms of government and between the two leaders of the Executive,” Mr Kimengere stated.

Ciru Njuguna is 28 and her husband Greg Twiss is 60. Please don’t let that age gap fool you, these two deeply love each other and they are living their best life together.

But when people say Ciru is just after Greg’s money and he will end up in a septic tank, that gets to her. She is not ashamed of her relationship and strongly urges the public to let other people be.

“My German husband is older than my father. People say I am his slave and he is a colonial master,” she says.

She sat down with Lynn Ngugi for this exclusive episode of Tuko Talks and this is her story.
