Patricia is a 18-year-old girl born to a family of 9 children in Laikipia North, Laikipia County. She has spent most of her life outside of the classroom due to her family’s inability to pay for her school fees.
Despite these challenges, she scored a 382 on her KCPE exam in 2016, ranking among the best 100 girls in Laikipia County. This impressive mark would have seen her admitted to most secondary schools. Unfortunately, she lacked the money for school fees to progress with her education.
Patricia exudes confidence. She is determined to one day become a lawyer to help her community and protect young girls against FGM and early childhood marriages. Unfortunately, her family is unable to support her and her other siblings’ basic needs, much less their education. When we met her, she was on the verge of losing hope.
Today, Patricia is in her final year at Mary Leakey Girls’ High School, where she is excelling in her classes and growing into a strong young woman. She is looking forward to taking her KCSE examinations at the end of the year and moving up to a good university in 2021. We hope that, with the help of a sponsor, she will be able to achieve her dreams and support her community for years to come. Can you help Patricia continue her winning streak in school?
