All our scholarship girls have suffered through tragedy, but Adamsay’s life has been worse than most.Read her story
When her parents died, she was forced to move in with her grandmother. This gave her a place to live but her grandmother was so poor she could barely afford to feed herself, so Adamsay had to find a way to provide food for both of them. She had no job, no skills, no experience, and no goods to sell.
But one morning, her market visit changed her life. Our program manager met with Adamsay and offered her the opportunity to go back to school.
Not only did Adamsay need the usual school fees, books, shoes, school bag and uniform, but the place she and her grandmother lived was so bad our program team had to find them a new home as well.
"I will be in my office, independent, taking care of myself... I will become somebody in this life."
The support transformed her life. She dared to dream of something better for herself. She allowed herself to create new dream for her future.
