We’re excited to introduce you to Ronald Oketch, our newest scholarship recipient in Kenya!

“My name is Ronald Oketch and I am 25 years of age.  I was born and still live in Mathare slums located in Nairobi country. I am second last born in a family comprising two sisters and three brothers. I am a partial orphan having lost my dad at a tender age of five years in the year 2002. He used to be a carpenter. I have lived the better part with my mother. She is only a domestic worker washing people’s cloths in neighboring estates. I was sponsored in both in primary and secondary school by Mathare Community Outreach. I would have easily missed going to school if this support didn’t come my way.

I am an ART enthusiast and in particular, the murals. I have had an opportunity to participate in MCO Inverted Art Camps for three years since 2014 and became an Artist Mentor in the year 2017 to date.

I have always looked forward to pursuing a advanced courses in visual art. That’s my passion! Here is some of my work.”
