My Story of Hope.

By Floridah Anyango | project Leader

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
