    Jackline

    Kenya

    Jackline was born with a fistula. She is the first born in her family and is from a humble background. Her parents are peasant farmers and sometimes the climate conditions are so harsh that they can hardly produce enough food for the family. The parents survive from casual labor. This sometimes can be seasonal. It took her 15 years before she got repaired. Her parents had tried to take her to other hospitals for treatment but were unable to raise the required amount of money for treatment, which caused Jackline to despair. She was lucky to be among the patients who were brought to The Gynocare Fistula Center for free surgery. She was identified by "A Little 4 A Lot" and sponsored to school. She is very grateful and considers herself lucky. She wants to work hard and succeed so that she can help her younger siblings.

    Rocio’s parents moved from a rural community to a larger town to provide their three daughters the opportunity to study at a secondary school. Her mother is a weaver, creating traditional, hand-woven Quechua textiles, and her father used to work as a porter on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu before suffering from a back injury. Rocio’s family sparks her drive to continue in her studies as she sees all of the sacrifices her parents have made for her. She loves numbers and problem solving, so she was very excited to be accepted into the Physics program at the national university. A natural leader, Rocio served as the mayor of her class all throughout high school. We are excited to see her continue to grow as a student and as a leader throughout her time with Mosqoy! “Sé que me esfuerzo en mis estudios y me seguirá esforzando aun con más ganas y así ayudar a mi familia en darles una mejor vida y a mi comunidad en progresar.” “I know I study hard and I will continue to study harder with even more motivation. This way I will help my family to have a better life and I will help my community to progress. "
