Despite the challenges, he managed so score very well on the primary school exam in 2015. However, he was not able to attend high school in 2016 because he couldn't afford the fees. 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

    Mozambique

    João was born in Sofala province. He is a playful and smiling boy with many interests. He likes to play with friends in the same neighborhood. His father died in 2012, victim of illness. In life, he was selling products at the local market. After some time, his mother remarried, but the current husband pays no attention to his stepchildren. He is making little jobs as a driver here and there and he only provides food for the whole family with his low income, while the mother plants rice to help her husband with the household expenses. As there is no money to support the school expenses for the stepchildren, João hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
