What does receiving this money mean to you?
My last born did his final examination in his primary school level and he needs to join his secondary school education. I have no money to cater for his education. This problem has given me sleepless nights for more than a month now. I have approached many government leaders seeking for assistance but in vain. The rest of my son's classmates have already joined different secondary schools but my son is still at home due to luck of money. Immediately after receiving the first transfer, I will do all the shopping and take my son to secondary school. I will save the second transfer for my son's education.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My daughter who was married in a nearby town bought me new clothes and assisted me when I had a neck problem. This brought joy and happiness to me because incase I have to attend an occasion, I have good clothes to put on.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Food insecurity is a challenge in my house. Getting food for the family means I have to do a white-collar activity like fetching water to a construction site, burning charcoal, or selling firewood to the nearby food canteen. I can bear all the issues because they have turned to be my life activities but lucking money to enable my son pursue his secondary school education is the biggest challenge I am passing through.
