Yvonne is very bright.
She went to St James Elite academy Primary school where she has an excellent record. She was among the best performing students at St Luke’s Wambarra Secondary School 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.
With the partial sponsorship of USD 183 annually, Yvonne will be able to clear the huge arrears that she has in secondary school. She however needs an additional USD 1296 annually to join Daystar University.
