About

Sereti’s parents are both subsistence farmers — cultivating crops and raising livestock. Sereti helps her family on their farm during the weekend. Her father has three wives and many children. Sereti is the youngest of five, having one brother and three sisters. None of Sereti’s other siblings were given the opportunity to go to secondary school. Instead, they were all married immediately after finishing primary school. Sereti hopes to be able to contribute to her family and make them proud by becoming the first in her family to complete secondary school.

Dear TSF Sponsors,

This is Samantha, Orkeeswa School's Scholarship Coordinator, writing on behalf of Sereti. Orkeeswa students just returned from their holiday break and are eager to be starting the new school year. Sereti and her classmates completed their 10th grade studies and National Exams last fall. 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 Sereti 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 Sereti's progress with her community service and entrepreneurship projects, as well as her plans going forward. Thank you for your continued support of Sereti and Orkeeswa School! We sincerely appreciate your partnership in providing the highest quality education to our students.

With gratitude,

Samantha

    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.”
