We went home after the first case of the virus was reported in our country. I tried at home to keep myself busy in books to utilize the long break. We are back in school, the school management is trying hard to keep us safe by enacting all measures that were outlined by the government. We have enough teachers who provide us with education so as to adequately prepare for our national examination that is scheduled for March 2021.

I promise to put in more effort for great results. All my appreciation to Wema organization's donors for sponsoring my high school education.

Thanks,
Praxedes
I would like to thank God for the far he has brought me. Lots of thanks to WEMA for the support you have lent me in my education and life.

I am fairing on well in school since all my required needs are met which avails me with a conducive environment to study. The management provides all the resources; books, food and also personal requirements.

I visit the library during my free time; it is bigger now and full of books which help me to complement my studies. I am determined to continue scoring A's in my tests. I love reading and singing.
I would like to become a surgeon in future with my God's grace and your continued support I know this is an achievable target so that I can also give back to my community.

Be blessed.
