About

Since Ngirunga’s father died many years ago, his mother has supported her four children by herself. Ngirunga now lives with his mother who is a subsistence farmer, his younger sister who is in primary school, and his two older brothers. His older brothers did not have the opportunity to go to secondary school and now work at home on the family farm. Ngirunga hopes to be able to receive a quality education so that he can give back to his family and ensure that his sister also goes to secondary school.

Hi TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School, writing on behalf of Ngirunga. Ngirunga is now in 11th grade, and he is studying Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. As you can imagine, he spends a lot of his time studying and staying late after school to review course material now that he has reached his Advanced Level studies!

Outside of classwork, Ngirunga still makes time to play sports with his friends, and has even just signed up for the Herbarium Club, which allows him to study different type of plants around campus.

Thank you for your continued support of Ngirunga and his education. It is your encouragement that has allowed him to grow into such an incredible scholar and leader on campus and in his community.

Many thanks!

Samantha

    I am the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
