Despite financial challenges at home, Clare started her Grade 9 in 2015, with help from an individual sponsor. But half way through the year, the funds ran out and she had to drop out. Her parents tried again in 2016 with help from various sources but she studied for only three months, then dropped out again. She came to Elimu in January and we enrolled her into Elimu’s Stay in School Project and took her back to high school. She has finally completed Grade 9 and is looking forward to moving on to Grade 10 in 2018.
