Still though, Linet did not have the money to attend University and started working in Kibera at Linda Primary School where she worked with preschool students. At the time, Abdul and the Foundation didn't have the resources to support Linet's education but Abdul kept in contact and continued to keep her spirits up, he was determined to figure something out. As the Foundation continued to grow and as additional resources and support came into the school, he encouraged Linet to apply. Linet applied to the University of East Africa, Baraton and she was just recently notified of her acceptance! In regards to Abdul, Linet said, "Abdul has such a big heart, he can help whomever. He has moved our whole family up from where we were. He follows up with you, he knows always where I am, not many people do that. I never thought that this was going to happen, I am excited that i will be seen as an important person in the community. If you want to succeed, you must have an education."
Linet will begin classes in August and will pursue a degree in education. She would like to teach Swahili, Math or Science in a primary school and wants to work in Kibera. The Kibera community has done so much for her she says, that she feels it is important to give back to her community. Everyone at the KGSA Foundation are incredibly proud of you Linet, congratulations! We are confident that you will go on to do amazing things with your degree.
