About this project

We have known Joyce for over 7 years now. She is 27 years old and has a little girl. She lives with her mother and two sisters plus their 4 children. Sie never had the chance to go onto secondary school, so in 2011 Joyce joined the Msulwa Youth Polytechnic and did her 2-year training to Grade 3 to become a dressmaker/tailoress. When she fininished, she stayed on and helped to train others and sat her Grade 2 exam and passed. She is so bright that we found a sponsor to finance her secondary education and she completed this with a pass in November 2018. As the schools in Kenya are now being digitalised there is a great need for school secretaries and so we are now looking for help to send Joyce to the Ukunda Youth Polytechnic to do a 2-year training to become a secretary. The 2-year course costs about 700 Euros. This is her chance to find permanent employment and provide for her family.
