OUR MODEL SHAPES THE FUTURE

OUR SUCCESS STORIES - OUR STUDENTS

 

Mary's life was tough. Born within a family of six with an income of $35 per month, her future was always uncertain. She had no real hope of ever going to high school.
We took in Mary in 2013 and supported her through high school. She joined university to study Community Health. She become a mentor to younger kids and a strong advocate for education. And now we have a graduate in Community Health!! Congratulations Mary
