Turkana model Ajuma tips KCPE candidates ahead of test
BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA
Nasanya Ajuma, the Turkana County-based model and the champion for Education in Rural Kenya, has tipped KCPE candidates ahead of the test.
The model gave a motivational talk on Friday to candidates at Rhino Primary School pupils in Nakuru Town East.
Ms Ajuma urged the pupils to work hard as they nurture their talents.
She also donated more than 3,000 exercise books to more than 1,200 pupils.
The donation was sponsored by Chipper cash, a Financial Technology firm based in San Francisco in the US to a tune of Sh6.8 million.
“My mission is to keep children in school. I was there in the rural area in Turkana County and I know what it takes to go to school without a simple exercise book to write on. Children are chased by teachers to go and bring books which their parents cannot afford,” she said.
“We’re heading to elections and what causes tension between communities is the fact that Kenyans don’t appreciate other peoples’ culture. This results in fear. I encourage learners to appreciate other cultures,” she noted.
She promised to help the younger generation embrace each other’s cultures.
“I come from humble beginnings and I was lucky to get a good education. I have a calling to give back to my community and Kenya at large. I urge the pupils to focus on education first and nurture their talents,” she added.
