Rajab Is Now A Medical Volunteer & A Graduate!
May 2021

My name is Rajab Kweyu Makokha. I’m 23 years old. I joined the Nasio Trust organisation at the age of 7 years as a partial orphan living with my mother who was doing small scale business. I went to Noah’s Ark for my pre-primary education where I learnt many skills. I really enjoyed creative art lessons where we did painting, drawings, reading story books and novels.

After completing my pre-primary education at Noah’s Ark, I joined Mumias Township Primary school from class one to class eight. Nasio provided me with revision materials, books and pens, tuition sessions, uniforms and lunch while I was in primary school. This made my life more comfortable while at school, giving me an opportunity to focus on my studies. During holiday periods, I used to volunteer at Noah’s Ark, helping with cleaning, washing dishes, harvesting and drying of food crops. This enabled me to gain some basic skills which are of great benefit to me in my day-to-day activities.

With the help of the Nasio Trust I was able to join St. Ignatius Mukumu Boys High School for my secondary education. I was very happy to have this opportunity and promised myself to do my best. Nasio paid my school fees provided me with revision materials, tuition classes and computer lessons during the holidays. In Secondary school, I was able to have a better opportunity to learn more things. I loved science subjects, and joined the debate club and football club – my high school experience was so nice.

After four years in high school, I was able to successfully complete my Secondary education and joined Kenya Medical Training College to pursue a Clinical Medicine and Surgery course. I lost my beloved mum during my first year at medical school. I wish to thank the Nasio Trust for the massive spiritual, emotional and financial support they provided. During holidays I volunteer at Nasio’s GMK Medical Centre, which enables me acquire more skills and experience in the medical field.

I am very happy to have successfully completed medical school and graduated as a clinician. I’m so, so happy to have achieved this.

I am very happy to have successfully completed medical school and graduated as a clinician. I’m so, so happy to have achieved this.

Currently, I’m volunteering at the Nasio Trust’s GMK Medical Centre as I wait to start my internship. I am continuing to gain more and more skills in treating patients, doing deliveries and other medical procedures. I also take part in Peer Education programmes, talking to our young ones on different aspects of life including reproductive health education to preventing teenage pregnancy, Covid-19 sensitisations, Career choices, and Talents and Gifts nurturing. I’m so happy to be serving my community with the skills I have gained. I hope to inspire more and more children to achieve their goals.

During this period, I have also learnt different skills which I believe are important in day to day life. I have learnt basic skills in data entry and presentations. I have also gained graphic design skills while making brochures and cover pages.

I hope that after I have completed my internship I can advance even more in the future and specialise to become a Paediatrician. I am forever grateful to the Nasio Trust for adding value to my life and for their continuous support.
