Nuria was the first student to be sponsored by The Fleischer Foundation back in 2014. She is the oldest of seven children, all who were raised by a single mother who worked as a shopkeeper in the Mukuru slum. She is currently in college in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa where she is studying medical laboratory technology. She hopes to work at a hospital when she completes her studies.
Kafia was sponsored by The Fleischer Foundation in 2016 as a 10th grader. She was the #1 pupil in her class, however she was forced to miss a substantial amount of class when she was unable to pay her school fees before she earned this scholarship. Currently, Kafia attends college studying tourism and wildlife. At the conclusion of her course, she hopes to join the tourism industry of Kenya guiding and teaching visitors about her home country of Kenya.
Fauziah received her sponsorship in January 2018 so she would be able to finish her last year of secondary school. It is rare that the Foundation sponsors students already in high school, but given her drive and performance in school, we chose to make an exception. She currently attends college where she is pursuing a course in Business Management. Outside of school, Fauziah is a member of the Red Cross Club, and enjoys reading and cooking.
