Moi Nyatike Boys hih school where I managed a grade of B plane [65 points} but I failed to get admission into a public universsity here in kenya.

Am kindly requesting the organisation to reconsider me as one of their sponsored students so as to persue my studies at a higher level of learning.I fully appreaciate your support and believe in your potential to transform the life of needy childrem.
