About

Class rank: 40/162 I live with my parents, but our life is difficult because we are very poor. My parents failed to pay school fee and to give us basic needs of food, clothes and education. My father is a farmer who grows tomatoes, maize, and vegetables. My mother sells tea to help the family. I want to study hard to change the life of my family and to make my life better and to help other people who have difficult lives like my parents. I pay God to help me. I thank The School Fund for supporting me and helping me to fulfill my dream to become a teacher.

Dear student,
It has been very long time since last time I wrote to you. I have been out of town attending conferences, doing business and helping with family issues.
I know the new school year began two months ago and I hope you are able to focus on your studies and set goals for yourself. I hope you are doing well this school year.
In your journals I would like to see you are learning, what you like and dislike about the school, your accomplishments, your difficulties your life and your obstacles you face.
I want you to evaluate yourself, what is your strength and weakness, which area do you need to improve yourself. That way I could know who you are and help me to know you better. I wish you have a great year ahead of you and let me know there are anything you need me to help.
Best regards, Judy

    Class rank: 3/45 I was born in 1998 at Mount Merry Hospital. The most difficult experience I had early in life is the death of my father. This made our family to be in a bad condition. Due to the fact that my mother has low income, which could not provide the family with basic needs like food, education, clothes and others, life become miserable. I thank God that He has provided me a chance in The School Fund and I promise to use the opportunity well by studying hard and being a good student. The happiest moment in my life will be when I fulfill my dream of becoming a medical doctor and helping my country, society, and family, as well as The School Fund which has supported me to fulfill my dream.

    I plan to grow up to be a Doctor, because I have seen many people have health problem. My happiest moment is when I was chosen to enter Form-1 after I completed primary level school. Not every child can enter Form-1, it is a privilege. I am so proud of myself. After I fulfill my Doctor dream, I will build a lot of hospitals. People can get medical services when they are sick. I plan to give back to the School Fund portion of my salary. Also I would like to join this organization to help other children to go to school and get educated.
