We are looking for a sponsor for Harriet
Harriet is a very bright girl coming from a humble family. She was one of the top performers in the Grade 8 in 2019 and she has talent and potential to be among the top students in high school too. However, her parents cannot afford paying her school fees and uniform, stationary etc.
The mother relies on occasional menial jobs to earn a living, while the father works as a casual labourer. The little they get is insufficient to put food on the table for the family of five leave alone the girl’s high school fees and other necessities.
After she finished class 8, Harriet offered to do light house duties for a lady in the neighbourhood to keep herself busy during December school break. During this time the lady discovered Harriet’s potential, intelligence and hard work and offered to educate her upon realizing that her family was not in a position to do so. Thanks to her generosity Harriet has been learning in form one until schools were shut down due to COVID in March 2020.
Unfortunately, Harriet did not join the school after the reopening in January. On enquiry, the school learnt that the lady who was helping her lost her job during the pandemic, had to move back to her rural home and cannot help Harriet any longer.
Harriet urgently needs a sponsor to be able to continue her studies and make her dream of becoming a journalist come true.
