Success Stories

World Scholarship Initiative provides students with four years of support to see them through high school.  These young men and women have completed their four years.  They were all were successful in high school and it was a pleasure to watch them grow as they succeeded in academics, athletics, and leadership. We are proud of their achievements and excited to see them continue their lives.

Some have decided to continue their education and other are working.  No matter what they do with the rest of their lives, it will be from a strong foundation, thanks to their hard work and the generosity of WSI’s supporters.

WSI supported Peris’s education at Christ the King from 2013 until she graduated in 2016. She is now attending the University of Nairobi with a government scholarship, where she is studying chemical engineering.  WSI continues to provide some support to Peris, recently purchasing a laptop for her schoolwork.

 

Peris has been very grateful for the opportunity to continue school: “Thank you very much for your support that you have given to me. You are the best thing that has ever happened in my life.”

Villitracia in her fourth year

Villitracia graduated from Christ the King in 2016 after four years of support from WSI. She did not gain admission to a four year university, and decided to spend a year studying to reapply.  She was successful and gained admission and a scholarship. She is now attending university on her own, without support from WSI.

When she was a high school student, she was effusive and warm in her appreciation to WSI donors.  She wrote: “Thank you all of you who are sponsoring me, for your kind hearts because you have helped with open hands. May you continue being blessed by God and may his blessings be with you wherever you go. I love you all.”
