About

My parents separated a long time ago and I have not seen either of them for two years now. I live with my grandparents and with my brother and sister. My grandfather owns one donkey and one cow, so we do not have very much money. My grandfather is also sick so my grandmother has a temporary job and this is where we get all of our money. Sometimes we have a hard time getting by on just that money. I finished primary school and I knew that I liked mathematics and history the best. I also like playing sports like netball.

This year it will be fifty years since I graduated from secondary school. My school is holding a reunion but I think I live too far away to go. But I remember so much about my school years, and I think school made a huge difference in my life. Here is a picture from my graduation. I am the one wearing glasses.
Hi TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, Orkeeswa School's Scholarship Coordinator, writing on behalf of Jennifer. Orkeeswa students just returned from their holiday break and are eager to be starting the new school year. Jennifer and her classmates completed their 10th grade studies and National Exams last fall, and while we wait for their exam results from the Ministry of Education, these students will be participating in a teacher training seminar, doing community service with local primary school students, and engaging in Orkeeswa's entrepreneurship training program.

These experiences will provide a unique opportunity for Jennifer and her classmates to give back to their community, as well as explore entrepreneurship as a career path as they wait to see what their next steps are in their secondary school education.

We will certainly keep you updated on Jennifer's progress with her community service and entrepreneurship projects, as well as her plans going forward. Thank you for your continued support of Jennifer and Orkeeswa School. We sincerely appreciate your partnership in providing the highest quality education to our students.

With gratitude,

Samantha

    I am the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
