Some of the beneficiaries talk fondly of the Trust and the support it gave them.

Joe Crispus Nyamalu, formerly, Public Relations Coordinator, USIU-Africa: 


I learnt about Rattansi Educational Trust in 1977 when I needed a scholarship to pursue a degree in Library and Information Science in Britain. Prof. Joseph Ojiambo, now a dean of Faculty of Information Sciences asked me to get in touch with Rattansi Educational Trust for assistance.

I received a positive response with a promise of sh.10,000 grant annually. I did not utilize the grant until 1981/1982 when I was in my first year at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. This grant helped me buy books, and other educational materials that I needed.

I would like to reiterate that the Rattansi Educational Trust is and has always been a cherished educational programme with no ethic/racial or discrimination of any kind. I thank the directors of Rattansi Educational Trust for providing such a facility that has enabled many Kenyans pursue educational careers.
