22nd May 2018:
This is Lusungu, one of our Girl Child Students who completed her MSCE last year and qualified for the prestigious University, Chancery College. But sadly as an orphan with no one in the world, she doesn’t have fees.
We have employed her since her exams, otherwise she would starve.
As a result of excellent results we have been working with Social Welfare to see if a bursary might be possible, but it’s not looking good. A college loan is possible but it’s a small amount.
She is a great young woman and works in the factory making pumps. Here she is cutting solid bar for pump parts.
It’s a strange and sad old world…
