"I have a story similar to yours. My secondary school fee was paid by a church harambee. I hustled for my diploma course. I have completed my Diploma course. I am reorganising for a degree program in Public Health. I am looking for a job to help me raise some cash to kick start my Degree."
"To my own experience, you will never regret doing so for the needy and one day you will find that the little things go beyond your imagination."
"You're one of the people that this country lacks. Keep up the good work."
