Door opens for Chepkoech


Chepkoech is second born girl in a family of six with a single parent. She is a focused girl who is working hard to see that she is a successful woman in life who can help others. After the 2008 post election vioence in Kenya, Chepkoech found herself on cross road of pursuing her education. Juhidi has been supporting her to access her primary education and this year this is what she had to say; "I am thankful for the support that I have been getting from Juhudi. I have managed to finish my primary education and now in a secondary school. I never thought that I could join secondary school as my mother could not make looking for food for us and also paying my school fees. I am in form one and hope that through your support I will finish my education and I will help my family and other girls who are facing the same challenges with risk of dropping out of school. The path is now visible and I see myself opening doors for other girls" Through your support, we are seeing more girls access education and focused to face the future.
