Without school, Daphne’s future was laid out in front of her. Most orphaned girls grow up in poverty. They tend to get married young. Their children are less likely to go to school. They are trapped in an endless cycle of poverty.

Thankfully, Daphne’s life took a different turn. A small primary school opened right in her village. It was free and it was meant for HIV/AIDS orphans like her. She was one of the lucky children who got to go to Mama Africa sponsored Primary Schools. 

She told us "I got a chance to put on shoes and have free education, which I never believed in my life."

She learned to believe again. She worked hard to do well in school and you were there to help her whenever she faced trouble. Last year all of her hard work paid off. She was admitted to

Daphine is an amazing young woman and we know she will do amazing things for the world. Her success is only possible because she you gave her the opportunity.

Thank you!
