“My name is Simon Salah, a 25 years’- old recent graduate of STTC (class of 2022). I joined STTC in August 2019 after completing my S4 studies in 2017 at Somali-Bantu Secondary School in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya. The information about the STTC call for new applicants was given to me by my brother, a former graduate (2017) of the college. This chance to enroll came as a golden opportunity; at a time when I had no school fees for further studies. My mother is a widow; survived by 3 children (2 boys and 1 girl) and who struggles to make ends meet, thus, quality education is a luxury; of which few can afford.
STTC is unique. As a college, it focuses on holistic education, thus, fostering peace and unity among students and the surrounding community of Yambio. I have managed to create life-long relationships with both colleagues and tutors, who have been instrumental in my professional, spiritual and mental growth for the last 3 years. With the skills I have gained, I will be able to go back to Nuba Mountains, Sudan and help teach in schools there. I will also be able to help my siblings with their school work as I look for work in the education sector in my country.”
