My name is Dennis Wanjala one of the Form Four students of Highway Academy. I would first like to thank the Almighty God and the WEMA Community for the support you have granted me thus far.

Since I joined Form One in the year Twenty Fifteen, I have witnessed many positive changes in my education. Coming from a Government Owned Primary School that had few or no books and very few teachers serving many students, Highway was a game changer in my educational journey. I have access to enough books in the school library and more material in the school Computer Lab in which I have acquired many skills including; typing and printing.

I read storybooks in the library to build on my command of the English language and I hope that one day I will stunt people with how I speak English.

Growing up, I would like to be a University Lecturer. It’s all tanks to you since I would never have reached this point without you.
HELLO DENIS
I hope your doing fine

As a result, she wants to be a teacher, so she can help people. She hopes to go to the United States to continue her education after Abaarso, so that she can do this.

    Silvia

    Peru

    "Silvia comes from a small community on the Inca Trail leading to Machu Picchu. Her community is in a beautiful natural area, but unfortunately suffers from challenges like alcoholism, domestic violence and poverty. There is also no option to access secondary education in near her home, so in order to attend secondary school she was chosen to participate in the Sacred Valley Project in the town of Ollantaytambo. Sacred Valley Project provides housing and leadership programming to girls like Silvia. Silvia dreams of one day owning her own restaurant and opening a shelter for abandoned children from in and around her community. To accomplish these dreams she applied and was accepted to Mosqoy. She just began her studies in Hotel and Business Administration and continues to build her leadership skills. We are excited to see Silvia develop into a leader for positive change in her community. “Si te caes, levántate y seguir viendo tu futuro.” “If you fall down, get up and continue to look towards the future.”

    Carolyne

    Kenya

    Carolyne is the third born child in a family of six. Two of her sisters have been sick since childhood they have never been enrolled in school due to their health conditions. Carolyne's father is a casual laborer while the mother stays at home to take care of the sick children. The medical treatment of the children has depleted all the family resources and they have to depend on the mercy of well-wishers. Carolyne has faced many challenges. Many times she slept hungry without food but was always looking forward to being in school as there was a free lunch served (thanks to the school feeding program supported by a charity organization). Carolyne was determined and worked hard and excelled. Carolyne wants to be a doctor in future to treat people whom suffering (just like her two sisters) and improve the health of the people in Kenya.
