Perseverance Wins Every Time
We are really proud of the group of girls who are pursuing a higher education.
Tanqua is one of our Superstars.
She just finished her first year of nursing school with a 3.5 (out of 4) GPA.
She is working hard and thriving. It’s an international school and we think she will go far with this opportunity she created for herself.
Tanqua’s parents could not afford to send her to school so they sent her to Warm Heart.
Troubles at home gave Tanqua membership in the “family” of kids who live at Warm Heart year around and when things are bad, you’d find her with us.
Her high school years were disrupted with family problems, but she managed to pull things together to get all her college exams completed and applications in.
Then she got caught in a government college admissions process that left thousands of students without acceptance at college.
But she perservered.
She found a couple of private nursing schools and got in. It’s more expensive but a much better education and excellent prospects.
Throughout this, she worried about her mother and younger sister.
Her father was ill with cancer and died over the summer. He was violent and abusive and it was a relief when he passed.
His family has taken her mother in (often widows end up on the street with no property rights) and her younger sister is now in 7th grade and living at Warm Heart.
Your support helps young girls like Tanqua pursue their dreams of a better life.
