Eline’s family works hard on their subsistence farm to make ends meet, but often lack the additional resources to pay for school fees. Eline has two siblings: a younger brother and an older sister. While attending secondary school in Form IV, Eline’s sister became pregnant. Eline’s family supported her through the pregnancy and now, Eline’s sister is back attending secondary school. Eline and her siblings are very thankful that their family supports their education despite obstacles. Eline is very close with her family and hopes to create a new future for them through her secondary education.

I lived with my parents at Gunyoda village for about 18 years when I was in primary and secondary schools. My father is about 79 years old and my mother is 67 years old. My parents got married in old ages. We now live in a worse condition due to absolute poverty in our family because of the age of my parents. I am the last born in our family, and the only one who went primary and secondary and now Advanced education. My parents are normal peasants who have one acre of land which is not enough to fulfill family basic need requirements such as food, shelter and clothes and the issue of school fees.
The most difficult experience that I had earlier in life is the worst living condition due to poverty, this is why I tried my level best in studies.
My dream is to be a good agricultural officer. That is why I am now studying hard to achieve my dream. I felt proud when I was selected to join Advanced high school. I am now very happy being in class for further studies.
I would like go to the University and I also hope to do the best at University in order to be a good servant to help the family, community and the government.
Juliet Siyan was born the second of eight siblings. She dreamed of being a doctor until, at age 13, she became pregnant. She carried her baby to term, suffering injuries during the birth. She learned of a clinic in Eldoret that could help her. There, she found the medical help she needed and she was able to imagine going back to school. She continues to dream of becoming a doctor. Her parents are now caring for her child to allow Juliet to study. She has eagerly returned to school this year at the Pratrician School.
