Marion Dreams Of Becoming A Doctor

By Cassandra Wilson | Communications Manager

Marion is a P.5 student at Nyaka Primary School and lives with her mother Dalen. Her late father, Emmanuel, died of HIV/AIDs in 2015, when she was just 5-years-old leaving them in a poor state, so much so that her mother could not provide basic needs or school fees. Faced with a huge burden of providing for the family, Dalen began casual labor work to put food on the table. She was planning to leave for Kampala city to work as a housemaid in order to pay Marion’s school fees, when a team from Nyaka Primary School came and recruited Marion. The school provided her an education, scholastic materials, meals and more at no cost to Dalen. Marion says, “I want to extend my thanks to [Nyaka] for giving me the opportunity to learn. Secondly I thank Madam Jennifer Natale [Nyaka, Chief Operating Officer] and Madam Shabnam Olinga [Nyaka, Program Director] for always coming to our school to give us words of encouragement. Lastly, I want to thank all the teachers and school social workers for educating and providing guidance to me. When I finish my studies I will become a doctor.”f

Thank you for supporting our mission to nurture and protect children so they can learn, grow, and thrive. We’re grateful to know our services not only positively impact students, like Marion, but their families as well by relieving the responsibility of paying for school fees and materials.
