Jenifer began pre-school at a public school, but had to drop out because she owed $4 in school fees. Because her hardworking mother – who was deserted by her husband – could not even find this small amount, Jennifer was denied entrance to primary school which is normally free at government schools. When we met her, she was growing up without going to school at all.
Although she lost over a year of school and at 7 years old, must begin from preschool, we are happy to have paid her debt and arranged for her to attend Kibeta English Medium Primary School as a boarding student where she receives good care and an excellent education. Her sponsor is pleased to give Jenifer this chance.
When Jenifer heard that she might go to a good school, she promised to get a good education for her older sisters and to build a home for her mother.
