Past Students of the Trust since 1957.

The Trust is proud of its former beneficiaries who have gone on to be leaders in different spheres of life. Just to name a few, they include: Raju Batavia (Batavia Enterprises Ltd., Mombasa)the late Justice J.M. Gachuhi (Court of Appeal), Mohamed Hyder (former Professor of Zoology and Principal, College of Biological and Physical Sciences, University of Nairobi), J.B. Karagu (former Attoney General), B.E. Kipkorir (former academic and Kenyas ambassador to the United States) and Sadru Ramji (Wyco Paints, Nairobi). Many other individuals continue to benefit from the Trust.

Above all, the Trust is also instrumental in soliciting for support from different institutions and individuals for those who are in need. The Trust is further credited for inspiring some individuals in the society who have proceeded to establish Trust funds for the benefit of the needy in the society.

A happy parent, Mr. Nazeer Dharshi, whose son is a beneficiary of the Trust said, "My son Nadeem studying at the University of British Columbia is one of the fortunate beneficiaries of your Trust. I am sure that anyone who benefit from your Trust must be so grateful and indebted to your board and I pray Almighty God to give you all, strength and courage to serve humanity as you have been doing.

Some of the beneficiaries talk fondly of the Trust and the support it gave them. Joe Crispus Nyamalu, formerly, Public Relations Coordinator, USIU-Africa, says, "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."

Ambassador Kipkorir is a seniour beneficiary of the Trust
One of the senior beneficiaries, Ambassador, Dr. Benjamin E. Kipkorir Says, "I was indeed a Rattansi Educational Trust beneficiary and have never forgotten it. Were it not for the 350 British Pounds per annum that Rattansi availed me in 1966, I would never have gone to Cambridge-at least not in that year. I have no doubts that the Trust has been of tremendous help to many Kenyans and I commend the Rattansi Educational Trust for its works."
