1. Elimu Africa is proud to provide some financial support to Catherine Issack Mdoe so she can continue her education!
Catherine is a girl of 14 yrs old. she was raised by her grandmother because her parents did not have enough space to live with her. Both of her parents only have primary education only and come from poor families. She passed at class seven and was chosen to go to government school. Fortunately her father got job with a good company. Jesca, from the Jiendeleze Women’s Group, advised him to take her to a boarding school because it is easier to her to get meals and focus on her studies compared to being at her grandmother’s house. Catherine’s father found a boarding school a bit far from Moshi, in a place called Usangi in Mwanga district. Catherine started secondary there and now she is in Form Two. Unfortunately her father’s job stopped, her parents had another baby and it was hard for them to take care the three kids. Catherine’s grandmother is sick also and depends on them. So they decided to take Catherine out of school because they can’t afford the payment and so she can stay again with her grandmother. With Elimu Africa funding, Catherine can return to school while helping the family.
