Team Touch The Sky is humbled and honored to sponsor these three very inspiring young ladies as they embark on their journey to touch the world. Meet Fatuma, Lilian and Rosalia and find out exactly why GIRLS ROCK... =)
Fatuma aspires to be an ambassador due to an inner desire to travel and passion for current events. During her first week at school, she asked staff for newspapers so that she could stay informed. She aims to help people with similar problems to hers, to fight against child abuse and to help create environmental awareness.
Lilian is a proud member of the Grassroots Girls Club, a club that implements grassroots techniques to help local women's groups in the area. She is an outspoken member and often takes initiative during meetings.
Lilian aspires to help her own community by becoming a doctor and help those with AIDS, since it is a disease that kills many in her town. She feels a responsibility to help others as she herself has been helped.
Rosalia is a lively and bubbly girl with a huge amount of enthusiasm in all subjects, especially drama. She is always one of the first students to have her hand raised for group activities, and one of the first girls out of her chair when she hears the music comes on.
Rosalia wishes to excel in her studies in order to reach her goal of becoming a doctor. In addition, she hopes to help girls in her community who cannot afford to go to secondary school. She refers to a Kikuyu saying that says, “A good family is a result of woman.” Her personal version, however, says that a good society is is a result of a woman.
