“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.

FAWE supported me through secondary school and I attained a grade B- in form four K.C.S.E exams. FAWE made me confident.

FAWE AGAINST CHILD LABOR: Education is the Key to end Child Labor

Education is a vital asset of any real efforts to eradicate child labor. Africa will not achieve Education For All (EFA), as child labor is still a big concern today. Poverty has hindered development and education. Children from poor families have been forced to leave their bed very early in morning to go out looking for jobs so as to provide financial support to their homes.
