“I was just 8 years old when my parents died. My relatives took care of me but unfortunately, I got pregnant in class 8 and dropped out of school before the final examination. I got married but by the grace of God through FAWE, I joined form one at Kitmikai Day Secondary School in Kisumu. FAWE supported me through secondary school and I attained a grade B- in form four K.C.S.E exams. FAWE made me confident.
