Victor Wanyama, the former captain of the Harambee Stars, has expressed his sincere gratitude to seven students from his foundation for their outstanding results in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
The Ministry of Education announced the results on Monday, showcasing these young talents’ academic accomplishments.
The star of the Victor Wanyama Foundation was Sironga High School student Omondi Tamara Zawadi, who achieved an outstanding A- in the KCSE exams.
Along with four other students from different secondary schools, Makokha Lamech, Shem Trizah, Sammy Ariko, and Shikomere Albert Siema, Eva Moraa, also from Sironga High School, also received a noteworthy B grade.
Victor Wanyama, the foundation’s mentor, must be very proud of his students’ outstanding performance.
“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate my little heroes and heroines from The Victor Wanyama Foundation @victorwanyamaf who sat for their KCSE last year. Your hard work and zeal didn’t go unrecognized,” wrote Victor Wanyama, expressing his joy and admiration for the students’ dedication to their studies.
In 2019, when Victor Wanyama launched the scholarship program, it was specifically designed for boys and girls who scored 400 marks and above in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
This initiative was driven by Wanyama’s commitment to uplifting young talents and providing them with opportunities to excel in their education.
Beyond his accomplishments on the football field, the CF Montreal midfielder formally established the Victor Wanyama Foundation in 2019.
The foundation’s vision encompasses a 20-acre piece of land in Busia, where they are building the main center to carry out their mission.
Registered as a non-profit company limited by guarantee, the foundation primarily focuses on four key pillars: health, education, sports, environment, and wildlife conservation.
Through his foundation, Victor Wanyama aims to make a lasting impact on the lives of young Kenyans by fostering academic excellence and nurturing talent in various fields.
