A big thank you to Johanna and Tim Masters for making a donation to Lift the Lid in honor of their youngest grandson’s first birthday. 100% of their contribution will go to Lenana Girls High School’s scholarship fund, helping the most financially distressed students to stay in school.
Fifteen-year-old Faith Musimbi has written an essay titled “My Life Experience” as a show of gratitude. She writes, “Sometimes I missed school for weeks at a time because of hunger. When I was in Class Four, I was the best pupil in mathematics and science in class. This, and the fact that I didn’t have any food for lunch, caused me to stand out to my science teacher, Mrs. Lydia.”
In her essay posted below, you can read about the trials she faced before making it to Lenana Girls High School. Thank you, again, Johanna and Tim, for supporting bright girls like Faith, who deserve a good education!
