From his income alone the grandfather cannot support this family. Yvonneis hugely in arrears and without support she doesn’t stand a chance at education.
Yvonne is very bright.
She went to St James Elite academy Primary school where she has an excellent record. She is currently in form 2 at St Luke’s Wambarra Secondary School where she has shown extreme academic potential amid obvious life challenges. Yvonne is a potential orphan since the father is very ill, they don’t seem to have any hopes that he will make it. The fact that they live in extreme poverty makes things even worse for the father. Yvonne left the father’s home to stay with the grandfather when life became extremely unbearable for her and the siblings.
For USD 183 annually, Yvonne has a chance to be in school.
It costs Kenya shillings 18700 per year to support Yvonne through education. Considering her huge arrears, she would need a four year support to be through with education.
