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)

She is from Abaarso village, and owes her ability to attend Abaarso to the student tutors from the school who taught her for several years. 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. She likes to run because it's good exercise, and she enjoys spending her free time with her friends.

    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.
