Thanks to YOUR generous contributions, Asabaawebwa has been fully funded for her junior year of school! Now our goal is to continue supporting Asabaawebwa's education and fund her for another consecutive year at PMM Girls' School. Your donations will help Asabaawebwa complete high school!

Asabaawebwa comes from a peasant family of nine siblings. Her parents earn very little from tilling the land and selling of the crops to meet family needs and pay for their school fees. It has been difficult to pay the fees for all nine children. The kids are sent home from time to time as fee defaulters. Two of her siblings gave up with studies even before completing their ordinary level examination. They stay home with no clear idea of what to do for their future. Asabaawebwa, on the other hand, decided that she must push on with education in spite of the hardships in her life. It is her dream to be the first graduate from their family. She has missed many lessons and even stayed away from school for a year at one time, but she persevered and resisted the idea of opting to get married.

 

You can help. For just $9.85, you can send Asabaawebwa to school for one week. Help us reach our goal to send all of the PMM students to school for a year!
