Your Inspirational Donation
Margaret is a 15 year old girl from a single mother. Her mother is HIV positive. Aware of her mothers’ situation, Margaret was so depressed and disturbed.
We counselled her throughout last year as she was candidate. When Margaret sat for her Primary school national examinations 2008 she scored 335 points out of maximum points of 500.This was a great performance!
Through your kind donations she was admitted in St. Marks Girls Secondary School one of the best schools in the province. Margaret annual school fees and upkeep is US$ 450
For the next four years, Margaret depends on well wishers donations to complete her education. Margaret is a promising girl and we look forward to her excellent performance and bright future. Your donations are offering great inspiration and give hope to girls who had lost hope in life.
‘I have no words to express my joy and appreciation to you who has made it possible for me to be in school. You have made me proud and given me hope in life. I look forward to your continued support to help me finish school. All my love to you’ Margaret
With Warm Regards from Margaret and TYSA
