Violet is a student from Kenya. She needs $340 to stay in school and is currently 29% toward her goal.

Raised $100 from 2 donors Needs $240


"I have faced many challenges such as a lack of textbooks. I had a torn uniform that I could not mend for a very long time. I was brought up in Kibera until class four when my life started to become hard. That's when I was taken to a rural area where I was staying with my grandmother who used to help my mother in paying school fees when she was unable. In fact I want to be a teacher so that I can be able to educate young children from the slums."
