Ines, a scholarship candidate we plan to support beginning in 2014, lost her father last year in a traffic accident last year. Her mother, Theonestina, works hard at a local kiosk selling shoes, bed-sheets, etc. to support both Ines and her brother Fred. Her monthly income of approximately $33 is not enough for most family expenses, and certainly not for the primary school education that Ines deserves.
We are currently raising funds so that Ines’s primary school education is assured. We are happy that she can live at home and walk to school. This saves a lot of money and makes her primary school education at $650 per year a real bargain.
