Back on Track Scholarship Recipient 2020
Education: third year student at the North Coast Medical Training College in Kenya, diploma in nutrition
Characteristic: Joseph is one of the best students in his class. Socially his conduct is beyond reproach. He is friendly and is the type of person who takes responsibility when it is required.
Parents’ job: His parents sell some of their farm products and his father works as a casual, as a mechanic. With those small sources of income they normally try to support Joseph and his three younger sisters.
Situation: He had been promised a sponsorship when he started his training. However, the sponsor only supported him
for one year and then left without informing him or his family. He has been really struggling. The family has been seriously affected by COVID-19 as they have hardly been able to sell any farm produce as transport to the markets was limited. Also, there have been no vehicles to come for services, so his father has not been able to work at all.
Solution: Joseph received a scholarship from the Hanze University Foundation, so he is able to continue his studies. This has been made possible with the Back on Track Scholarship fund. Do you wish to support more students like Joseph? More information.
