Featured Student (Scholarship)

Stephen Kivombo is the fifth born in a family of six. He started his primary education in 2000 and completed  in 2009, he joined secondary school in 2010 and completed in 2014, scoring a B plain. Stephen comes  from an economically challenged background, his father always struggled to pay for his education. Despite his good grades, he had no prospects of ever joining a university,  just like his elder sisters and brothers who only managed to complete secondary school.

In 2018, 4 years later, Stephen was lucky to receive a full scholarship from The Islamic University of Kenya.

“When I was awarded the scholarship  to study Business Management, I saw an opportunity to make my dream a reality and save my family from the yoke of poverty. I aspire to either start my own company or manage big businesses either in my country or abroad. Through this sponsored course, I will work hard to realize this dream. I appreciate the positive influence IUK is having  on my life”.
