Euphrasia is an incredibly talented and confident young woman. From the moment we met her, we were stunned at her fluency in English, and her comfort with speaking to adults from other countries. It was almost like she was fearless. Euphrasia is one of 9 children from a father who had two wives. For the past nine years, Euphrasia’s mother has been caring for all 9 children as both Euphrasia’s father and “Auntie” have passed away. She comes from an area in Western Kenya near the Ugandan border.
Euphrasia wants to be an author, an owner of an orphanage, and a leader in her community to fight corruption, and a counselor for those who feel they are worthless. With her confidence, and determination, we have no doubt that Euphrasia can accomplish anything she puts her mind to, given the right opportunities.
