I heard about this program and I got so excited at the possibility of me being a beneficiary. I am in secondary school form three and my biggest challenge is financing, I am constantly sent back home for arrears. In a term, I pay 9000 KES, I am eager to know that with the monthly transfers I will be able to pay my school fees and avoid being sent back home. 2000 KES will cater to the school fees, while the 1000 KES will act as my pocket money.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Weddings are usual in our village but there is one I attended this January that stood out. I had never seen a drone with my eye until this wedding. It was the highlight of my day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The back and forth between school and home because of finances is my difficulty. I am a form three student in Mnazimwenga and soon to be a candidate. So many times I am at home because of arrears which put me at a disadvantage. My wish is to finish school and get good grades that can create an opportunity for me to enroll in an Engineering course but with this challenge, I fear I might lose my chance.
