Hannah Salaverry

THE STORY:

Christine is from Nanyuki, and is one of six children in her family - she has worked tirelessly to find a spot at Daraja. When she was ten years old in Class 4, her father pulled her from school so she could help herd their livestock and support the family. When the police forced her parents to send her to school, they weren’t too pleased with losing her help as a herds girl.
Within a few days her father had sent her to a family 10km away with 30 goats and sheep which she was supposed to herd for an extremely low wage. Thanks to the head teacher of her primary school, they were able to track her down and bring her back to school.

Christine’s resiliency in the face of her parents’ restrictions to her education is admirable. It is that drive that has landed her at the Daraja Academy.

Christine loves spending time with her friends, and enjoys playing football. In the past she has participated in the debate club, and hopes to carry those skills over to Daraja. Christine also adamantly opposes gossip and talking behind peoples’ backs - a respectable quality that will go hand in hand with her commitment to making her Daraja experience as positive and powerful as it can be.
