I am a teacher by profession, certificate holder. I cleared college in 2018 but have not gotten a stable employment. I am employed under Parent Teacher Association which I am paid KES 6000 per month. My pay is not sufficient to meet all my needs. I am a single mother with 2 children.Teachers service commission has ordered us to go back to school for diploma in order to be employed on permanent basis but due to lack of money I have not been able to achieve that. So when I get this money I would like to enrol for diploma in CBC. This will run for one year. To complete it I need KES 90000. On completing this Diploma I am confident that I will be employed under Teacher service commission thus a better future for my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning. I am happy that I have seen a new and it motivates me to go to school to teach. It brings joy to me to impart knowledge in the children hoping they will have a better future.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship has been getting employment, being certificate holder has been a challenge especially with the new school curriculum. Nearly all the schools needed a teacher with Diploma in new curriculum. Financially constraints has also delayed me in furthering my studies thus not achieving my lifetime goals and meeting the needs of my family.
