About

Among the youngest in her class, Elizabeth is a motivated, confident young woman. The first in her family to attend secondary school, Elizabeth is already bringing her education to her family, as she regularly tutors her younger sister at home, in addition to helping with her regular daily chores. Curious and witty, Elizabeth loves participating in hands-on science projects and performing in the school’s choir, dance and drama groups. Elizabeth’s parents are young and very supportive of Elizabeth’s education, but lack the means to support her with school fees and other basic expenses.

Hi, TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Elizabeth's School, sending an update on her behalf. Elizabeth moved on to the 9th grade in January, and she has spent the past few months completing dynamic, team-based group work with her peers while learning about collaboration, which is one of Orkeeswa School’s core values.

I sat down with Elizabeth recently to ask her how she collaborates with peers both in and outside the classroom, and I thought you might like to hear some of her insights on this topic.

"Collaboration is when two people meet and talk with each other. Collaboration is very important because people can communicate together and do many things that they could never do alone! When we work together, we can help our community because we can learn from each other, and educate other people in our society. Our ideas will spread to others and create change if we just communicate and listen to one another.

I collaborate with my friends by studying with them whenever I need help or we have an exam coming up. We study by ourselves, and then after we finish studying, we close our books and discuss what we read together until we understand. I couldn’t pass if I tried to do it all by myself! Succeeding takes many people, like students and teachers, working together to gain knowledge."

Thank you for your continued support of Elizabeth as she continues in her educational journey at Orkeeswa School!

With gratitude,

Samantha (on behalf of Elizabeth)
