Beneficiaries Testimonial



The contagious smile and aura of enthusiasm surrounding Ronald Shivachi when he visited the Jomo Kenyatta foundation (JKF) are without a doubt his best unspoken way of expressing gratitude for what the organization has done to transform his life.

Four years ago, Shivachi had lost all hope of joining high school. He was born and abandoned as an infant. It took the intervention of his aunt to nurture and see him through primary education. That was not an easy task as she barely had enough to take care of her own children to begin with.

Shivachi did his KCPE and scored 356 points. He was admitted to Kajiado High School but reporting alone was a mirage. It was then that he applied for the JKF scholarship and was successful. He worked hard and scored an impressive B+ in KCSE.


On the day he came to JKF, the ebullient Shivachi was presenting his KCSE certificate. His next point of call was Maseno University, where he would pursue a Bachelor of Science in Computer Technology degree.

If the joy imprinted on Shivachi’s face is anything to write home about, then it is clear to all and sundry that the JKF scholarship is lighting up people’s lives. He promises to work hard and become a game changer in the computer technology industry. Crucially, he looks forward to giving back to society by paying for the education of needy students when money starts flowing into his wallet.



The JKF Scholarship Programme is an educational fund set up by The Jomo Kenyatta Foundation (JKF) to assist bright but needy students in public secondary schools in Kenya. Started in 1968, the Programme has to date
