Here’s a quick update on the girls who we have supported. In total, we have fully taken in eight girls. Two of our girls, the very first group of beneficiaries, were from Ng’iya Girls High School. These two girls have since completed their high school education. One girl, Seline Akoth, is studying BCOM at Kenyatta University, and the other, Everlyne Anyango, is at Kisii University, studying for the award of the Bachelor of Co-operative Management. They are both in first year. We have six more girls who are in various high schools; Faith Atieno is in Form 4 at Asumbi girls, Keziah Juma is in Form 3 at St. Stephen’s Siginga Mixed, Christine Awuor Odhiambo is in Form 3 at Kuja Special Secondary, Merceline Awino is in Form 3 at Lifunga Girls, Beryl Esther Ogalo is in form 1 at Asumbi girls, and Ruth Wambui is in form 1 at AIC Morop Girls. Back in February 2016, through our ever generous contributors, we also helped Scovia Auma pay her form one fees at Moi Tea Girls Nakuru. Although we did not take in Scovia fully because of finances, we do check on her from time to time.
We do visit our girls and mentor them on issues of school, life, and future careers. Our hope is that we shall inspire these girls to dream beyond the situations they have been through in life, and that they will see education as a powerful tool that can take them to greater heights.
We do appreciate all the members of HGCF, friends; both local and international, strangers, who have helped us and held our hands on this journey. Your generosity and kindness has been humbling. To think that when we began, our slogan was, “Women can change this world, one girl at a time,” we can only marvel at the support and the achievements we have had so far.
