Deaf graduate gets scholarship - 15/Dec/2009
Hard work and determination pays. A deaf Moi University graduate who overcame all odds to attain a degree in Guidance and Counselling has received a scholarship to pursue her Masters degree.
This was after The Standard highlighted Rose Kwamboka’s feat. Despite being deaf Ms Kwamboka went through the four-year course without special aids.
She copied notes from her friends and studied on her own, as she did not have an interpreter.
Now, Muhamud Said, the Africa Co-odinator of the Pedro Foundation Cavadas of Valencia, Spain – an international NGO, said the organisation would sponsor Kwamboka.
He said her story on The Standard last Friday moved him and they would meet her education costs to achieve her lifelong dreams. http://www.standardmedia.co.ke/education/InsidePage.php?id=1144030346&cid=316
