Coastweek – - Two pupils – Alwiya Mukhdar and Ahmed Abdallah after completion of their pre-primary education at the Khairat Nursery school, Mwembe Kuku Mombasa; have received a full scholarship to study at the Aga Khan Academy.
The two received the award after successfully going through a series of assessments to test their academic capability, leadership skills and social interactions.
Both Alwiya and Ahmed come from humble family background; this has not hindered their performance to excel.
The pupils joined class one in January 2009 and have been able to settle down quite well in their new environment.
Khairat Nursery school is among the community pre-schools being supported by the Madrasa Resource Centre, Kenya (MRC K); an early childhood development project of the Aga Khan Foundation.
