Norah Chelagat; Top Student Ranked 4th In 2013 KCSE Exams Committed Suicide Abroad

It’s every parent’s dream to see their children prosper and excel especially in academics. In Kenya and most African countries, education is considered the only route to success therefore parents are known to give their all in an attempt to make sure their kids succeed in education.

Students who excell academically often choose to study their undergraduate degrees abroad if parents are able. Those from humble backgrounds sometimes acquire scholarships that enable them to study abroad for free.

Unfortunately, the physical distance between the students and parents after travelling abroad does not allow close supervision and guidance. This in some cases does not end well.
