About

Faith is the last-born child in a family of three. She did her final primary school exam in 2018 and passed well but she could not proceed to high school due to lack of school fees. She however did not give up in life. She decided to repeat grade eight with hope that her mother would take her to school. Due to extreme poverty her elder siblings never went to high school. Her father is a drunkard and abusive. With the little income from casual jobs, her mother has managed to cater for the family’s basic needs. With all these many challenges, Faith has remained focused. She dreams to be a renowned lawyer in future to litigate on matters concerning the poor and especially the girl child. To her determination knows no barriers.

Hello donors
Its my hope that your doing good.I am also working tirelessly towards my studies to improve my results and build up my future. I am very glad to inform you that I am back from school for a holiday which is very long and admit to use the time very well in studies through visiting the Kenya connect library and also helping my parents in this winter season.
I will utilise the time well and do what is expected of me and work on my discipline to impress my parent and also my mentors. I am also practising my career through listening to my friends cases and help them in regaining their peace and from that I have got a very good name which is a Peace maker and am proud to be such a person now and in future.
I have involved myself in reading set books which I do at my own time which I find it more helpful for improvement of my language in both speaking and writing. I came home for the holiday on 23rd November 2022 and I will resume on 25th January 2023 for the start of form four.
I will never stop to thank you for your great support in my education. Thank you so much and may God bless you.
Hello Susan!
I am very happy to find this. I had a very nice break and I enjoyed much. I also enjoy walking in forest and I like viewing wild animals which is good. I also like discovering the environment they live. When not studying I would like to travel to many places and learn more from different countries. Thank you very much for having your time to write this to me. Bye bye.
