Until Standard Digital contacted her, Lillian Ayabei was not aware that the ‘God-sent’ organisation was the Atheist in Kenya Society, an organisation that does not believe in the existence of God.
“I am grateful someone has offered to help. I was worried my son’s education was coming to an end because I could not afford to pay school fees but now I am grateful to God,” she said
Her son, Idriss Saidi Lutta, was set to join Maranda High School after getting 401 out of 500 marks in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCSE) exams.
He was a student at Emining Primary School and emerged the best in Mogotio Sub-County, Baringo. His aspiration for high school education was uncertain as his mother could not raise the required Sh53,000 school fees.
The president of the society Harrison Mumia said they had fully paid Lutta’s first term fees.
“The Atheist in Kenya Society commits to financially support Lutta throughout his high school education at Maranda High School,” Mumia said in a statement.
Lutta’s class teacher, Madam Rono, confirmed receiving the money, indicating that Sh27,000 had been transferred to Maranda School account through Co-operative Bank.
She also said that they had received an additional Sh18,000 to cater to the student’s shopping.
