A young secondary school girl going by the name Mellam Njeri Njuguna was on Wednesday captured along the streets of Nairobi begging for assistance to help her pay her school fees. Mellan with her bag and uniform took her plea to the streets with a poster written "Please Help Me with School Fees" with the hope that Kenyan well wishers would come through to her rescue.
To prove her identity and school details, the form two student at Kihumbu-ini Secondary School even had her school identity card with the details of her parents. However, the girl urged concerned pedestrians not to publicize her father's details as he was no longer part of her and their family's life.
Not to forget, the girl also shared a letter from her school with details on her fee balance of about 29 thousand and the school payment details as shown in the images below
So far, the girl has attracted loads of attention on social media and well wishers have started coming through to help her get back to school. Since the opening of school and the recent admissions into form one, many students and learners have been stranded at home and in the streets due to lack of school fees. This comes even after Education CS Fred Maghoha had made it clear that no student should stay at home or be sent out of school due to lack of fees. Kindly if you can help the girl in her education contact her school or use the details on the paper to help her out. Please share widely
