“We thank Swanya foundation for rescuing us from the jaws of poverty. We are proud because we will sit for examination like other students and this is the opportunity we have received to shape our future. We promise to work hard to better our lives,” Said Geoffrey Orina a beneficiary.

“The future of this nation lies on those people who have manufacturing skills. Those are the people who will create employment in line with the President’s big 4 agenda. These are the only people who will fulfill this initiative because after leaving here with skills they will be able to depend on themselves and promoting others by creating employment,” Said Swanya.
