Isaiah, otherwise know as Izoh, was born in Kitale region in 1995. He comes from a large, academically strong family but sadly his parents couldn’t provide for his school fees and they often slept without food.
He is now studying a Bachelor of Environment Studies degree at Eldoret University and wishes to be a Geologist. He is determined to make the most of the opportunity his sponsor and friend Jonathan Moniatis has helped make possible. The pair love to chat about their shared love for Arsenal Football Club. Like most Kenyans Izoh loves Ugali, their staple food made from maize flour and water. He loves watching movies and playing football with his friends at Uni.
The whole of GEF was smiling with pride for Isaiah Lokiles when in June 2018 he commenced a work experience with Tullow Oil in Kenya. We received the following update from Isaiah when he started:
“I landed safely to Kapese where Tullow are doing their explorations, it’s really more than awesome! I never believed that one day I’ll step in an aeroplane but have now realised that all is possible. Thank you to all who made this happen. On Sunday we celebrated a significant milestone in the step towards the development of Kenya’s oil resources – the first oil to be exported from Kenya. It was officially launched by the president of Kenya and many other Tullow officials. It was really a great day for the company and all Kenyans.”
Thank you to Zawadi, Dave and all at Tullow who have helped this inspirational young man realise a dream!
