The well-known Pastor Ezekiel Odero has given more than 6.6 million Kenyan shillings to enable 103 talented but financially disadvantaged youngsters from Kilifi County to attend high school.

In addition, Pastor Ezekiel of New Life Ministries, which has its headquarters in the Mavueni suburb of Kilifi County, handed one-fifteen thousand shillings to each student as they entered the first year of each of their various schools' forms.

He made the news on Sunday afternoon at his church, during a worship service for the pupils that took place just before they left to go to school. He advised the youngsters to put their whole effort into their studies and to use the information they gained for the improvement of their nation.

He claimed that the sum of KES 6.6 million was the tuition for one year of school and pledged to pay the remainder of the tuition for all four years before April of this year.

"This is 6,650,000 Kenyan shillings, which is going to aid the education of our children." He told the students, "You are the future of this country, and when you finish school and get jobs, please do not export your expertise to foreign countries but rather help us build our own country."


The pupils' parents and one of the head teachers from the public primary school that achieved the highest scores in the county on the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) also participated in the event.

Remarkable results were achieved by Constance Dama at her school, which had a total of 99 students participate in the evaluation. At least 17 contenders earned a score of 400 or above, with the candidate with the lowest performance earning 308 points.

"This girl is the one who did well in her community, and it hurt me when she was fighting to acquire sponsorship so that she could continue her education." It was a difficult situation since parents were breathing down my neck to assist their children in enrolling in high school, but I had knocked on every door in the building without any result, she recalled. "It was a terrible thing."

When she found out that all of her applicants had been awarded scholarships, she described herself as being overcome with happiness. She had a hard time finding sponsors for them since the majority of kids were from financially difficult situations.

She expressed her gratitude to Pastor Odero for his thoughtfulness and compassion, and she hoped that God would shower plentiful blessings upon him.

Frederick Nguma, who is the Chief Officer for Education in Kilifi County, expressed gratitude to the pastor on behalf of the county government and said that New Life Ministries had accomplished something that no other church in the region had ever accomplished before.

He thanked them profusely and said, "You have done what other churches have never done in the history of our area, and we are extremely grateful."
