I have a sister who did KCSE 2015 and scored C+ and a C in maths and English. she is passionate to pursue a business course but unfortunately my dad cant afford the fees since he’s a farmer in voi town. My sister worked in order to assist in paying her highschool fees and now she and I again are working trying to save money to join a higher education institution to pi sue the course of her dreams. Can she get a chance to secure a chance to this scholarship?
