Visiting Shatti on left in class 2 and Akhi in class 9, two cousins both supported for school. Akhi has one shortened leg after an accident and walks with somewhat of a limp now. If anything this makes her more determined than most to succeed in her education. She hopes to go on to college and university.

One of three coaching/study groups who now meet in our Asha Literacy Centre each evening. We are seeing a shift to targeted tutoring of children we are supporting in national schools. The oldest groups are specifically for girls.
I know, there is no end to these girls and no budget left to pay for them! Still…… Joba is 14 and was in class 8 last year. This year her old father is too sick to work and her mother brought the girl to Rosey Foundation begging for us to give her work. We cannot give work to a 14 year old but I have promised that we will help her return to school at the end of February and she is overjoyed. Can you help me fulfil that promise?
