Development Pathways is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the Krystle Kabare Scholarship 2024. This scholarship offers full academic funding for one Kenyan graduate student with disabilities, enabling them to attend the University of Nairobi in September/October 2024. 

Launched in 2019, the Krystle Kabare Scholarship commemorates the life and work of Krystle Kabare, a cherished Social Policy Specialist at Development Pathways. Krystle was deeply dedicated to improving the lives of society’s most vulnerable individuals and fervently advocated for the rights of people with disabilities. 

The scholarship aims to advance the education of a Kenyan Master’s degree student with disabilities. It supports studies in fields such as Public Health, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Social Statistics, or other relevant disciplines. 

Entering its fifth year, the scholarship has so far benefited four exceptional students. Peter Muraya, the inaugural recipient, is pursuing an MA in Climate Change Adaptation and is currently working on his thesis. Dennis Mugambi, the second recipient, is working on a research proposal for his MA in Human Rights. Marion Ronoh, the third beneficiary, is in her second year, third semester of an MA in Education. Ruth Ongaga began her MA in Human Rights last October.
