“I believe I will make it.”

These are the words of 13 year old Michelle who, despite having endured an extremely difficult childhood, excelled in her recent end of primary school exams by scoring 408/500 - one of the highest marks in the whole of Kenya.

Her teacher tells us that Michelle is a hardworking, modest, courteous and honest girl who is fantastic at art and dreams one day of becoming a Doctor.

Michelle a grandmother has sacrificed a lot and worked very hard in bringing her up. She also funded her whole primary education but unfortunately the cost of secondary school fees are impossible for her to afford.

If you or your company are in a position to support some of Michelle’s secondary and university education, we’d be really grateful if you could get in touch via info@gathimbaedwardsfoundation.org. Due to the high secondary school fees, we are hoping to find a company or individual who can support her fees, uniform, books and stationery for £70 per month or two sponsors who would be willing to sponsor £35 each.
