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.

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.

Marsha
Greetings,
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.

GOOD BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.

    I am the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
