Elijah Musilu is a student from Kenya. He needs $500 by January 1, 2022 to stay in school and is currently 68% toward his goal.

Raised $340 from 1 donor Needs $160


Elijah is the fourth born in a family of five. Their father neglected the family and left his mother the burden of providing for the family. The mother lost her business last year due to Covid-19 and now does casual jobs to support two of her daughters in secondary school. At home Elijah could not study well due to lack of reliable source of light. He used to wake up very early to make it to school in order to utilize the electricity at the school. Managing time well and consulting teachers made him excel in his studies. He aspires to be an aeronautical engineer and making new discoveries. His academic path so far has taught him that every successful person has a painful story. Elijah likes swimming.

    I am the second child of a single mother who works as a casual worker, mostly doing household laundry in the neighborhood. She also does other small trades and through this, she can only pay for my older brother's fee. I love playing volleyball and my dream is to represent kenya at an international level. I also dream of being an engineer and try establish a foundation to help needy children in my community.

    I was raised by father after the death of my mother in 2009. She was the family' breadwinner and this proved very difficult for us. In primary school, I was supported by well-wishers and they were not able to extend the help beyong that level. I dream of being a doctor and help people in my community and Kenya at large. Hopefully, my influence will be some dsy felt across the globe.
