Dear TSF Sponsors,

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School, writing on behalf of Amina. Amina is learning a lot in the 8th Grade this year, and recently, in her Life Skills classes, she has been learning about the importance of exploring and identifying different aspects of her personal identity. She wrote this beautiful poem about herself, and I thought you would like to read it!

Hi, TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School. Amina is a bright and confident 7th grader who is always smiling and usually the first student to raise her hand in class after every question. Recently, in her Life Skills class, Amina wrote a poem about her home and community. I thought you might like to read it to get a bit more insight into her values and interests!

Thank you for your support of Amina and Orkeeswa School.

With gratitude,

Samantha

As a result, she wants to be a teacher, so she can help people. She hopes to go to the United States to continue her education after Abaarso, so that she can do this.

    Silvia

    Peru

    "Silvia comes from a small community on the Inca Trail leading to Machu Picchu. Her community is in a beautiful natural area, but unfortunately suffers from challenges like alcoholism, domestic violence and poverty. There is also no option to access secondary education in near her home, so in order to attend secondary school she was chosen to participate in the Sacred Valley Project in the town of Ollantaytambo. Sacred Valley Project provides housing and leadership programming to girls like Silvia. Silvia dreams of one day owning her own restaurant and opening a shelter for abandoned children from in and around her community. To accomplish these dreams she applied and was accepted to Mosqoy. She just began her studies in Hotel and Business Administration and continues to build her leadership skills. We are excited to see Silvia develop into a leader for positive change in her community. “Si te caes, levántate y seguir viendo tu futuro.” “If you fall down, get up and continue to look towards the future.”

    Carolyne

    Kenya

    Carolyne is the third born child in a family of six. Two of her sisters have been sick since childhood they have never been enrolled in school due to their health conditions. Carolyne's father is a casual laborer while the mother stays at home to take care of the sick children. The medical treatment of the children has depleted all the family resources and they have to depend on the mercy of well-wishers. Carolyne has faced many challenges. Many times she slept hungry without food but was always looking forward to being in school as there was a free lunch served (thanks to the school feeding program supported by a charity organization). Carolyne was determined and worked hard and excelled. Carolyne wants to be a doctor in future to treat people whom suffering (just like her two sisters) and improve the health of the people in Kenya.
