Five siblings from a low-income family in Likoni, Mombasa County, who had dropped out of school, have been awarded full scholarships to pursue their education. They received the scholarships from Bridge International Academies in conjunction with Miss World Africa, Evelyn Njambi.

The sisters — Maridhia Saidi 15, Mwanahamisi Saidi 13, Mwanamvua Saidi 10, Somoye Saidi 5 and Mwanamkasi Saidi 4 — had stopped going to school three years ago because their family could not afford it.

Mwanamkasi, the youngest of the five, said she wants to become a police officer when she grows up.

 “Our father is jobless and he asked us to stop going to school as he could not afford it. We used to go nights without food. Life has been very difficult after mum left, we don’t know where she is,” said Maridhia.

The reigning Miss World Kenya, spearheads the project, called Reach for the Stars.

Bridge International Academies said it has collaborated with Ms Njambi, an advocate for universal education for disadvantaged children.
