Joyce Kariuki is 14 years old and one of the top 3 students at Kianjogu Primary School. Last term, she earned an impressive average of 350/500 marks. Joyce has one older brother; their mother passed away in 2011, leaving the children in the care of their father, who could not provide for their education and daily needs and later abandoned them .
Her brother finished his primary schooling in 2013, but was unable to join secondary school and reverted to working as a day laborer around their village. Joyce currently lives with her aunt, who is also a day laborer and has kids of her own to take care of.
Joyce loves volleyball, and has been part of her school’s volleyball team in the last three years, competing up to the sub-county levels. If no assistance comes her way, Joyce has no other means to join secondary school next year. Help Joyce achieve her dream of a happy future by sponsoring her today.
