Eight New Students Awarded Full Four Year Scholarships From The Bernard and Elsie Weiss Dago Scholarships Program!
We are incredibly excited to announce that due to the outstanding support we have received from so many people, we have just awarded 8 new full four year scholarships. This means, with the support from so many people, we have now awarded 32 scholarships. Together we are giving real HOPE and the opportunity of a high school education to these poor, bright, and hard-working children and making the world a better place, on child at a time.
The four girls are: Christine Akoth, Hazel Awuor Omondi, Lorren Adiahambo and Marion Jackline Awuor.
The four boys are: Brian Omondi, Donald Bicko Otieno, Maxwel Onyango Owino, and Shalton Achieng.
Soon I will have the names of the high schools they will be attending and I will share that with you at that time.
I do not even know how to properly thank all of you who have made this happen. We started with one student in 2011 and look at what we have created. Your faith and trust in me and the work I have been doing here touches my heart in so many ways. Please know when I go back to Kenya I always feel I am taking a piece of each of you with me. These young people are so inspiring to me and they just want a chance in this world. YOU have given them a real chance. Next June my brother Bunny will be coming with me and we hope to represent each of you with honor.
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2017!
