Raised $200 from 2 donors Needs $0


Class rank: 2/125 I live with my grandmother because my mother died a long time ago when I was a child. At that time, my father was present but didn't care for me. When I asked him to send me to school, he ignored me and said that it is not right for girls to go to school, only boys. But later on my grandfather decided to send me to school. I started standard one in 2005 and finished standard seven in 2011. After that, I started secondary school, but then my grandfather died. I remained with my grandmother, but my life was very difficult since we were not able to get basic needs like clothes and food, and she couldn't pay my school fees. My headmaster helped me from form 1 to form 4, but stopped after that. Therefore, now I am very happy to get a chance to be supported by The School Fund because my dream to be a teacher will be successful. When I become a teacher, I will give back to The School Fund by supporting students in the program.

I enjoy reading your journal. I would love to learn about your life. You can write back to tell me about your family, like how many brothers and sister do you have? Do you have good friends? What do you do with your friends? Do you like music? Do you like to sing or dance? Do you like sports? What makes you happy? What do you do when you are out of school? What do you do to help your families? See, I have so many questions. Please write back to tell me your stories.
