Susan looks at TYSA as Family
Susan is 16 year old. She is a form one student at Wiyeta Girls secondary school.
Susan’s family is separated and she lives with her mother in a single roomed house in the village, not too far away from the TYSA offices. Her father is alcoholic and is visible in the community drunk and disorderly. Her mother works as a casual labourer in the maize farms and little business to keep her large family of 6. She is the first born.
Susan finds consolation and comfort at the TYSA resource centre and the football ground where she spent most of her time. ‘I feel so frustrated sometimes when I see my father drunk and loitering in the community. It feels very bad. My mum works hard to try to feed us. I felt very bad one day when my mum told me to go to my dad to get little pocket money, when I went to see him, he chased me away in day broad right in presence of my friends’ TYSA endeavours to offer Susan and other girls in similar situation a good environment for personal growth. Without TYSA support, Susan and other girls in similar situation will not be able to access education
Your continued donations have ensured Susan and others who goes to secondary school. I would not have gone to secondary school, if TYSA did not pay my school fees. I remember that day when the Executive Director, bought everything for me and paid school fees. I will never forget TYSA and all those who support my education’ Susan.
With warm regards from Susan and TYSA Gichuki Francis
