What our beneficiaries say
Julius Waweru Munene
My name is Julius Waweru Munene. My transformation journey with Palmhouse Foundation began in the year 2007 shortly after my K.C.S.E results. I got 432 marks out of 500 and was admitted to Alliance High School. Though worth celebration, my results only added grief to me and my family as we could not afford schools fees to take me to the centre of excellence. Fortunately, to my relief, I applied for the Palmhouse sponsorship and was one of the five kids selected in the then Central province. In the foundation, I have been given the rare opportunity of interacting with students of similar financial background and I have learnt that I’m not the only one who has gone through challenges. The per term mentoring session has also enabled me to interact with people of diverse careers. Through their advice, I have been equipped with the do’s and don’ts of life. I have learnt to share my problems, worries, ambitions and success with people who want to mould me into a self-reliant and responsible person. Through the foundation, I have identified my passion in technology and have purposed to pursue a career in the same field. I have won two international software awards: Best Mobile Application in Apps for Africa by Ericsson Application Awards (2012) and Best Mobile Application in Windows Phone Eastern and Southern Africa by Microsoft Imagine Cup (2012). In 2013, I co-founded a tech start up; funkieys.com-an online events management platform. My dream is to see a technologically empowered Kenya and Africa at large

Dr. Mary Mugure Kamau
My name is Dr. Mary Mugure Kamau. I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at Kenyatta University. Being brought up in a poor background, I knew I could not achieve my dreams despite being a bright student because my parents could not afford to pay my school fees. My dream to become a doctor was brought to realization when Palmhouse Foundation came to my rescue by offering scholarship for my high school education. I felt that life had started a new. I worked very hard and managed to score an A of 83 points at St. Anne’s Secondary school- Lioki in Kiambu. I am now a 1st year student at the Kenyatta University. Palmhouse means a lot to me. It has been a bridge reconnecting me to my dream by not only paying fees, but also through mentoring sessions offered to the beneficiaries. Thanks to the founders of the Palmhouse Foundation and the trustees.
