Poor girl appeals for help to join Form One

A girl doing odd jobs to earn bread for the family. Many children across the country are in danger of missing their Form One placements due to poverty.

A day after Form One students reported to their respective schools, a poor girl Faith Chepchumba is appealing for help to join Talau High School after she scored 284 marks but finances have become a cropper.

Born to a single mother in a family of five, Chepchumba has had to struggle through primary school life as her mother is poor and disabled.

In spite of the myriad challenges that she faced through her 8-year academic journey, she was able to pass well and now her education might hit a snag if help does not come her way.

Her longtime dream is to become a nurse.

Her former class teacher Obop Felix says at no one time was she able to purchase her uniform, further confirming that the family survives on rendering domestic chores in exchange for upkeep.

For inquiries and assistance, call Barnabas Chirchir, head teacher: 0720 649 954, or Obop Felix: 0723 641 824 (class teacher).
