"When I received my final high school results, tears rolled down my cheek and I though that I would never go back to school again or find meaningful ways to support my community. I had hopes of becoming a doctor. I was inspired to pursue this career after I saw many people die from my village becuase they could not access medical support on time. Now that dream is Vanished"
For many High School students like Caleb who graduated from High School in April, everything seemed deam. Caleb tried the best he could in school with the resources available to him, but unfortunately his grades were not enough to take him to college or university. Caleb comes from a family of 6, he is the third born. His parents earn less than $ 4 a day, making it difficult for him and his siblings to access quality education.
Caleb was introduced to our leadership and entrepreneurship program by a friend. The program equips high school graduates with sustaibable economic empowerment skills in order for them to create employment for themselves. "This was a great opportunity to figh back" Caleb narrates.
"Since I joined the program in May, I have been able to learn computer packages, introduction to entrepreneurship, leadership and photography. I feel like I have various options to continue supporting my community as a result of the program offered by Garden of Hope Foundation. I look forward to graduating from the program soon. Don't give up in life as long as there is still possible opportunity for you to make something out of it" Caleb smiles as he finishes the interview.
