THE STORY:

Josephine is a determined young
woman with a passion for receiving
an education. That idea seemed
near impossible for awhile, as she is
the only child out of her 5 siblings
to attend high school. Her oldest
brother owns a water cart and takes
care of the family financially, as
their parents are too old to work.
Although Josephine’s two sisters
were married by the time they
turned Josephine’s age, Josephine
had other plans. After getting high
marks on her K.C.P.E. exam, she
wrote many letters seeking an
opportunity to move on to
secondary school.

“I am so lucky to have been
accepted into Daraja,” she said. “I
would not have given up. I would
have kept writing letters and
repeating class 8 until someone
would let me into school.” Josephine
enjoys such hobbies as singing,
dancing, and drama club, and her
favorite subject at Daraja is biology.
Although one of the few girls who
doesn’t know what she wants to be
when she grows up, she is sure of
one thing: she wants to help people
