  2. Aki you need to help students from Mogotio, Baringo county. Especially those from Katorong’ot village. They are unable to finish their studies because of school fees issues. The villagers from Katorong’ot village don’t have jobs, they don’t have farms since they are chased whenever the owner of the plot they stay shows up. They cannot be heard in schools, because they are believed they don’t have money. Students are eager to learn but cannot afford to complete high school.
    There is one girl by the name Joyce Illa who is willing to continue with her studies but she was told to complete 12000 fees or her balance to be below 2000. Her father struggles for them to put something on the table. He buys water then sells to people around Mogotio town using his bicycle which is very tiring.
    She has tried to reach the area chief and also in educational office but all in vain. All they tell her is that they are only helping those joining form 1 and she is in form 3.
    Please help these people
