Meet Regina Njeri, a 15-year-old student from Boror Mixed Secodary School with a class rank of 7.
Please describe your need with paying school fees:
First of all, if you guys had not paid for my school fees, I don’t know if my family and I would have had the means to eat lunch and supper. My mother’s salary is so little that she can only provide for our basic needs.
What goals do you have, either in school or for a career in your future?
I have a dream of going to a university, and not just any university, but a great one. I also have a dream of becoming a great writer, not only in Kenya, but also in other countries. Throughout my childhood I dreamt of becoming a pathologist as well. I truly hope that all of this will come true, and I work as hard as I can to make it happen.
How has the support provided by Hopeful Africa affected you?
You see, when I came to this school in first term, I did not expect to continue with my education to second term. My mother had already started looking for ways to bring everything back on track, but that was not possible. Until Hopeful Africa came into the picture. Truly, I was saved from being sent home each and everyday at school. This has enabled me to save time for my revisions and readings.
