Lekapana Maniweli




Maniweli Lekapana was born in 1995 in the Samburu village of Lerata. He has 2 brothers and 6 sisters. Maniweli has been going to school since 2002. When he finished the 8th grade at Lerata Primary School he had results of 293 on the Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education exam. He has been accepted to Maralal High School which is a national school. Maniweli’s high school is 150kms away from his home village and family and it will be the first time in his life he has traveled outside of his community. He is very excited about it. Coming from a background where one’s livelihood is largely dependent on the weather and geological conditions, Maniweli is looking forward to carving his own future and being able to support himself and his family through his own efforts and accomplishments.
