Qudra came across Good Kenyan Foundation through it’s Co-founder and ED, Lucy during a student’s meeting with the Seeds of Hope Foundation, which is a partner organization. The Seeds for Hope Foundation had sponsored her through high school and she did not know what to do next. When she heard of the program, she applied and succeeded in the interviews. Qudra was part of cohort 10 in 2021 and was very eager to better her life and that of her family.
During the program, she was exposed to ICT, Design and the basics of coding through the trainers and mentors and her interest in this field was heightened.
Having come from a low-income family, she could not pursue her dreams to further her studies in design and ICT. Qudra applied for the Akira Chix Code Hive Program and was among the few selected to undertake the course.
Through encouragement and support from Lucy Chepchumba, her family, and her mentor, Qudra remained focused on her course and managed to complete the program in December 2022.
