Thank you Alison Strong of Manhattan for your donation to Lenana Girls High School in Kitale, Kenya! Not only will your contribution help to complete the school, we now have the opportunity to read Favour Wamboi’s essay “A Brightened Life.” She is in the first year of high school at Lenana.

Favour entered her essay in Lenana’s First Annual Writing Competition sponsored by Lift the Lid and was awarded an Honorable Mention. In her story, we see how important going to school is to her, so much so that she entered into marriage at an early age for the promise of an education. But that isn’t the end of her story. In fact, it is just the beginning.
