Miriam urgently needs help. Her father was recently released from prison after attempting to sexually assault her. She is now safe at Dream Children’s Home, where she is receiving counseling to help her process this trauma. However, Miriam’s future still hangs in the balance.
Miriam’s family consist of her father, mother, and brother. Her father was a minibus driver before being imprisoned, and her mother is a flower farmer in Naivasha. Currently a form one student, Miriam amazed us by sharing that she had earned 408 out of 500 points at the end of her first term. This meant that her average grade was an A, and that despite the horrible situation going on at home, she was flourishing at the boarding school she was attending. However, she also told us that her parents were thinking of transferring her to a day school, citing the high cost associated with boarding school as draining. Not only would this pull Miriam out of the environment she had become used to, but it would also mean that her father had ready access to her. Moja Tu is not about to let that happen.
Miriam has been rescued from an extremely toxic environment, but her fight isn’t over. She will need the support and love of a sponsor to help her continue her high school education and eventually reach university. Here, Miriam will be able to study cardiology, the career she wishes to pursue. Don’t let this bright young woman’s talents go to waste – sponsor her today!
Sponsoring Miriam’s education is $85/month. Thank you for supporting Just One!
