About

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.

Hello, Samwel,
My name is Edna Mwende from Machakos in Kenya and I am a student at Karima Girls' High School in Kenya. My hobby is singing and dancing. Our school is a boarding school but now we are at home for a mid term break. I will go back to school on Thursday. I have only been in the school for 2 months so I am still learning more about it. We have done our first exam and I hope I will perform well. How is the education system in Tanzania? Hoping to hear from you.

    Isaya comes from a very large family as his father had 9 wives and dozens of children. His mother has 9 children herself, including Isaya. However, now that Isaya’s father has died, his mother struggles to support her many children as a subsistence farmer. Isaya is the youngest son and only one of his older siblings had the opportunity to attend secondary school. He hopes to be able to follow in his brother’s footsteps and finish secondary school — setting a good example for his younger sister who also attends Orkeeswa in Form One.

    I want to grow up to be a Heart Doctor because there are so many people I know suffer with heart problem. My happiest moment in my life is also the moment I felt so proud of myself. That is when I passed my national exams with the highest in the class. After I become a doctor, I will come back to my community and help those less fortunate people. I also plan to help the School Fund with portion of my salary.

    Class Rank: 3/29 The moment that I felt proud of myself is when I passed my primary school education with higher marks. I always dream of becoming an engineer. I will get there by studying hard, mostly in Physics and Chemistry. Even though I live in an orphanage, I am happy most of the time. I feel especially happy when I pass my exams. When I fulfill my dream, I will give back to the community by constructing a good road and houses. The School Fund gives me the opportunity to continue my education and fulfill my dreams in the near future. After I become an engineer, I will encourage all my fellow friends to contribute more money to the School Fund to continue supporting many needy children.
