"I am done with my final high shool examination" these were Joyce's words in December 2018 after graduating from high school. Joyce joined Garden of Hope Foundation school mentorship program four years ago after  completing her primiary education. Coming from a humble background, Joyce worked hard to ensure that her final primary school grades could at least admit her to a local high school. We met her three months after she joined high school. Our team had a short conversation with her since she had expressed interest in joining the  school mentorship clubs. 

'I am currently not sure if I will graduate from high school" Joyce said "My parents earn $ 6 a day and I have six siblings who are also going to school" She continues. Joyce's story represents over 500 students Garden of Hope Foundation work with on a weekly  basis through our mentorship program. "Some of the challenges I face currently include access to menstrual products, I miss school when I get my periods because my parents would rather buy food instead of sanitary towels. My books are not enough and I also have school arrears"  

 

The shool mentorship program provides 1,500 girls with menstrual products per  quarter. Garden of Hope Foundation was able to suppport Joyce with menstrual products, in addition, we partnered with another organization to ensure that she stayed in school without being sent home. 

 

Joyce just graduated from high school and she is looking forward to joing uniersity in May. Partner with us in 2019 to keep more students like joyce in school.
