Grace Rehema Kahindi , who is an ASSETS graduate just joined A Rocha as an intern in the accounts department.Grace is the second child out of eight in her family. Her parents are jobless and have a small piece of land on which they grow cassavas to feed the family and barely have surplus to sell  for cash for their children’s school fees.

Thanks to the ASSETS bursary scheme,however, Rehema became the first child to get a complete secondary school education in her family. In Kenya, secondary school is the most expensive to afford  unlike university or college where there are many different organisations that give grants,scholarships and loans.

Rehema, through a loan by higher education loans board(HELB) is currently in her second year of study at Bondo university college where she is pursuing a degree in international tourism management.

She hopes to support her family upon completion of her studies and that some of her siblings will also benefit from the ASSETS scheme. It is through donations and support from local and international well wishers that this program is able to give people like Rehema, the audacity to dream of and hope for a better future.
