Unexpected Sponsorship

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of Unexpected sponsorship It was in 2007 when my sister finished her primary level and passed with good marks but there was no one to pay for her secondary education because back then my mum had no job.As a parent my mum tried so much to take my sister to school,she even went ahead and applied for bursaries but that could not work. My sister stayed in the house for about 3 months hoping that one day she would make it to school but all that was in vain.My sister decided to look for any job so she could save money so she could join secondary school.No one was ready to employ her since she was under age.One day my sister was walking when she met a rich woman who used to be my mums friend.She stopped my sister and asked how she was doing with the schooling.My sister became speechless,the woman pleaded with her to tell her the problem.She did not refuse to tell the story to a well wisher.When the woman heard the story she decided to sponsor my sister until she cleared her secondary education.
