Edna is a student from Kenya. She needs $500 to stay in school and is currently 80% toward her goal.

Raised $401 from 2 donors Needs $99


Edna is second born child in a family of three. She stays with her grandmother who has taken up the responsibility of caring for her. Her mother is single and jobless. Edna’s elder sister dropped out of school in form two due to lack of school fees. Edna’s journey to success in primary school was not without challenges. She woke up at the crack of dawn each morning and walked about 2 kilometers to school. Sometimes she went to school without any breakfast. Other times she arrived to school late and had to take a punishment but that did not make her to give up. She remained determined and worked hard to attain good grades. Edna emerged the best student by scoring 396 marks out of 500 at her school. She believes that determination knows no barrier.

Hi Marsha,
I am very happy to be back home for midterm break. The term has been well and I have been working hard in my studies to achieve my goal . It is true that there has been a lot of rains in Kenya especially in Wamunyu. The farmers have harvested a lot from their farms. You are welcomed back in Wamunyu together with your family. I will not tire working hard in school.


Hi Edna,

I am so happy to hear that you had a good Easter holiday and are happy to be going back to school. I’ve heard that there have been a lot of rains in Kenya. Is this true in Wamunyu? Does that mean that there should be good crops from the farms??

I loved the time that my children and I spent in Wamunyu last summer. I feel like we left a part of our hearts there.

I’m attaching a picture of the three of us. (My husband was unable to go with us and now he says he would like to go!).

I hope you’ll keep studying hard and working in school. I will keep you in my prayers.

The time has now come to go back to school. The holiday has been fine and I have been helping my parents with the house chores. I have also studied to improve on my grades. The Easter holiday has been fine and we celebrated it merrily. The holiday is now over and we thank God that we are going back to school again.
I am very happy for your support and may bless you so much.
