Christine Wambui Irungu, who was admitted to Alliance Girls after a sterling performance in the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Examination (KCPE), said that will not let poverty end her dream of joining Alliance Girls.

Christine scored 403 marks and was the best pupil at Maombi Primary School in Nakuru County.

In interview with the Nation Media, She said "I know my parents are struggling to meet the basic needs but I will not let my dreams of joining Alliance Girls fade. I will do basic manual work at home to raise money and reduce the fees burden on my parents."

Nakuru Senator, Susan Kihika, has come to the rescue of Christine who had resorted to menial jobs to raise her form one school fees.

Kihika promised to sponsor the student throughout her high school education.

The outspoken Nakuru Senator noted that education is the best equalizer and should be made affordable to every member of the society irrespective of their social status or economic background.
