About

Shy but energetic, Naleku is determined to continue her studies. As a child, she rolled into a fire while napping and suffered from burns on her face. But, despite this incident, Naleku radiates positive energy and interacts confidently with her peers, both in the classroom and on the sports fields. Before passing away several years ago, Naleku’s father had six wives and many children. Naleku will be the first of her mother’s children to attend secondary school as her mother was unable to afford school fees for Naleku’s older brothers

Dear TSF sponsors,

This is Tunu, the Communications Manager at Orkeeswa School.

I hope this email finds you well and healthy, especially during this difficult time in our world. As you may be aware, Orkeeswa School reopened in June after we made several changes on campus to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and community.

Naleku is doing well and is excited to be back in school catching up with her studies. She is currently focused on covering her 9th Grade topics, and in Life Skills she is learning about Mindfulness and Meditation. She has written a letter to check in with you and your families, as well as share with you an update on what she is doing in class. You should receive the letter soon!

We look forward to keeping you updated on Naleku's progress and thank you for your continued support in her education. We are so thankful for your partnership, which has been even more critical this year during the pandemic, ensuring we can stay on track with our mission to provide the highest-quality education to our students.

With Gratitude,
Tunu and Orkeeswa School

    It was difficult when I joined form one. The problem was how to communicate using the English language, it was difficult to me, but now I have learnt this language and it is helping me to answer questions from exams. The moment I felt proud of myself was when I passed standard seven national examinations. My happiest time is when it is my birthday. My dream is to be electrical engineer. I will have to study hard science subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. After reaching my dream, I will make sure that my family has access to electricity. I will help my community as an engineer and I will use part of my salary to support WEF students. If I could change my country, I would supply everybody with electricity.

    The most difficulty I have experienced in my life is the poor economic status of our family. I sometimes participated in the work at home instead of going to school, due lack of enough for school needs such books, uniforms and exercise books. My dream is to be an engineer. I will reach there through studying hard and I will work hard in some practical activities in order to have enough skills and knowledge. I felt especially proud of myself when I joined Endarofta secondary school. I was very happy because I knew that as a member of WEF I will be able to study well since my needs will be covered. The happiest moment in my life was when I was selected to join secondary education. I was proud because there are a lot of students who miss the chance.

    It was hard sometimes when I was sent back home, lacking funds for the school requirement. I missed some classes and I lost concentration on my studies. Although these are challenges, I make all my efforts to pass. The happiest moments in my life are when I am progressing well and pass all my examinations. My success in my examination inspires my parents love me. Four years from now I hope to be at form five proceeding with my higher education.
