THE STORY:

Claris is one of 13 children whose father had two wives. When Claris was young, her father’s second wife passed away leaving all the children under the care of Claris’s mother. There were several small children at the same age and all the siblings pitched in to help. Because of the poverty level of the family, none of the children were able to proceed to secondary school, until last year due to two scholarships made available to the family. (One of those being a Daraja scholarship for Claris).

During Claris’s primary school, her father and two brothers became very sick and needed lots of care and medical treatment. She often stayed home from school to assist. Claris is very bright and was determined to finish her education. She finished her 8th grade year, but there was no money to continue forward. Without telling her family, she decided to repeat 7th and 8th grade in the hopes that within those two years, the family might be able to come up with fees for secondary school.

The second time Claris took her 8th grade exam, her scores were high enough to raise the notice of a student sponsorship organization that helped Daraja Academy locate Claris. Her vision of attending secondary school came to fruition.
