"Hello,

2020 was a tough year me as a student. In March, I had to stop going to school becuase of Covid-19. I had only 1 year left before I graduate from high school. I was confused and anxious, studying at home proved difficult especially in situations where I could not understand different concepts. 

In June the same year, my parents lost their sources of  income. I had to step in and start supporting my parents, I dropped my studies at and started hawking bananas. My parents would on the other hand do some casual work. I come from a family of 6. I am the second born, the first born has her own family. In a day, we would make $ 3. 

I was introduced to Garden of Hope Foundation through the mentorship sessions they run in our school. Seeing that life was difficult. I turned to one place I knew I would get hope, this was GoHF. After sharing my situation with the team from Garden of Hope Foundation, they invited me to join their Covid-19 tuition program. This program was being offered to all the students who could not afford to study at home. Garden of Hope Foundation also provided my family with start-up capital to start a small business. 

In January 2021, Garden of Hope Foundation paid my school fees for the term. Though, my mum has secured another job, Dad is still running the business started by Garden of Hope Foundation." 

Thank you for your support.
