Elizabeth applied to join the program and we accepted her, during her time with us she proved not only to be disciplined, but hardworking. She did not have any entrepreneurship or computer skills when she joined the program. Through her hard work, she managed to only top the class, but also start a small business with skills she had received.  

For her to get more skills, Elizabeth applied to join our volunteer and internship program to be one of computer tutors.  Since she graduated in 2017, Elizabeth has trained more than 50 youth equipping them with computer skills, she has also equipped 20 youth with entrepreneurship and leadership skills.

There are over 50 girls like Elizabeth who are currently waiting to join our leadership development and entrepreneurship program. You can support them by donating $ 30. This will allow them to go through the entire program. Most women and girls from urban slums are not able to continue with their education due to various factors like early marriage, female genital mutilation.

Thank you for your support.

My Story of Hope.

Mentorship Session
Mentorship Session

 

The dusty road lead us to a house inside Kibera slum, we find Sylvia seated with her Aunt. They Usher us in their the home with warm smile. In the house you can see the sky through the toned iron sheet roof, which makes it difficult for Sylvia to study especially when it rains. This is where Sylvia and her two siblings call home.

Sylvia has been an active member of our school mentorship program for two years. “When I joined Garden of Hope Foundation club in our school, I had just come from up country.” She tells us, My Mum was struggling and so they sent us to come and stay with my Aunt in Kibera”. She continues

“Getting basic needs was difficult, as a girl I went through so many challenges and some of my friends suggested that I needed to get married. When Garden of Hope Foundation came to our school, they started supporting me through counselling sessions, paid my schools fees, bought me basic school supplies and they also provided me with monthly supply of menstrual products. Since 2016 my confidence and grades has increased thanks to frequent attendance in Garden of Hope Foundation clubs. I will be sitting for my last high school exams in November 2018.

For a donation of $ 25, you will be able to keep another student like me in school. Join Garden of Hope Foundation on 7th Sept 2018 for a dinner event and listen to more transformation stories of transformation like mine. If you cannot make to come, consider making a tax deductible donation online.” Sylvia
