He is very grateful to receive a scholarship and now he is facing no challenges at school. "i am working extra hard to make sure i score an A in my KCSE exam and become an engineer in future. Then i will assist the needy and the orphans through Wema." -Lawrence.

My name is Wabwile Lawrence, I am a student at Highway Academy. My life before coming to Wema was horrible cumbered by school fees problems, Family problems and many more, however, I got a scholarship from WEMA and all this took a U-turn. I would like thank all that are involved in Wema and the management of Highway Academy.

I like reading novels in our School library like, ’’The Blood Red Road’’ which teaches about moral lessons and how one should leave against each other. The subjects that I love most are Mathematics, History and Christian Religious Education because I wish to be a lawyer in future.

I also thank the school management for providing me with a conducive environment for me to pursue my dreams.

I have all the reading materials I need to pass my exams and I promise to do exactly that.

Thank You
