In the heart of Manyatta, Kisumu County lies a story of resilience and hope. Meet Faith*, a bright young girl whose journey to education has been marked by challenges but fueled by unwavering determination. Thanks to the diligent efforts of Soulevement and Rise to Shine Foundation, Faith's education dreams are being realized against all odds.

Faith, a Form One student, faced the harsh realities of life at a tender age. With her parents separated due to socio-economic issues, Faith found herself navigating through uncertainty. Living with her father and two siblings, Faith's home was often plagued by financial instability, leading to missed school days and nights spent hungry and homeless.

Despite the adversities she faced, Faith's spirit remained unbroken. With the support of caseworkers from Soulevement and Rise to Shine Foundation, Faith received the crucial assistance she needed to stay in school. Her school fees have been paid for the entire year, and she is provided with ongoing counselling sessions for her and her family, addressing the psychological toll of their circumstances.

Faith's challenges extended beyond the classroom. The strained relationship between her parents and the constant instability at home took a toll on her well-being. Yet, amidst the chaos, she found solace in her dreams. She aspires to become a journalist, not only to support her family but also to inspire others facing similar struggles.

However, Faith's road to education is riddled with obstacles. Living constantly fearing eviction and enduring nights in other people's homes, her dreams hang in the balance. She longs for the stability of a boarding school where she can study without interruptions and focus on her future.

Despite the challenges, Faith's resilience shines through. She remains steadfast in her pursuit of education, embodying the spirit of perseverance in the face of adversity.

Faith's story is not just about her journey; it's a testament to the transformative power of education. Every child deserves the opportunity to learn, grow, and pursue their dreams.
