Leparmarai  Philip




Philip is the oldest student in our program – he was born in 1987 and graduated from primary school in 2003 . He is the eldest of 6 children in a traditional family of nomadic pastoralists and after school he returned to his family and has spent the past 4 years as a cattle herder looking after the family goats and cattle traveling with the animals in search of water and grass.

He enjoyed school and has always regretted not being able to go on to secondary education. This past year has been especially hard for Philip due to the drought as so many of his livestock died. When he heard about the scholarship program he went to Meru on his own initiative and applied for a place at Meru Training institute. He came to us this year to ask us if he could get a scholarship and although he graduated 4 years ago(2003) he is so clearly motivated to be successful that we have no hesitation in putting him in the program.
