Jan 25, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- For the first time, Gawaar -Nuer community in Kenya registered one of the highest number of candidates in both Kenya Certificate of Primary(KCPE) and Secondary Education(KCSE) since the establishment of Kakuma Refugees Camp in North Western Kenya.

In Kakuma alone the community produced 47 candidates who successfully sat for KCPE. Out of 47 candidates, 7 were females and out of 7 females one girl scored 378 out of 500 marks.The girl who scored 378, Nyapal Gabriel Duop, is the daughter of former Ayod Commissioner and former Minister of Law, Maj.Gen. Gabriel Duop Lam who is currently a deputy chief of staff for operation in SPLM/SPLA in Opposition.

Based on these records, the proud elders of Gawar-Nuer community in Kenya, and Kakuma in particular, congratulate the candidates and encourage the industrious students to maintain their momentum while moving on to pursue higher education.

The elders call on the next candidates to pick up the challenge and make their families and community prouder by setting even more records for the upcoming generations.

The delighted elders, who witnessed these performances call on the community worldwide to lend extra support to the students, specially those who had scored very high and may fail to continue their higher education due to lack of resources, through any means possible.

The community regrets that it did not afford to convene a thank-giving prayer due to lack of finances in the camp but they are still hoping to do so.

To mention a few people who extend their congratulations to our candidates (listed below), here are the lists:
