Naomi is the firstborn daughter in her family. She is currently finishing 8th grade and about to begin her first year of high school. She received a one-year scholarship to cover her high school tuition. For family’s like Naomi’s, high school tuition is a fortune, costing approximately $500/year when many families like hers are making less than $2/day. This can add up to be an entire year’s wages.

Naomi is so grateful for sponsorship of her 2023 school year. When girls in Kenya remain in school past 8th grade, they are much more likely to graduate and continue on to college. Girls who complete their secondary education also marry later, are less vulnerable to exploitation, and become more civically engaged. All of these factors help to reduce overall poverty. See Naomi’s bio she wrote for us:

My name is Naomi and I am the first born in our family. We live with our grandmother after our mum who is single left us to unknown destination. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor, but that can be achieved by me proceeding to high school and achieve my dream so that I may able to help vulnerable children like me. I’m appealing for Foothold International to help me with high school fees. Even the sky cannot limit me.

Foothold International also thanks you for your generosity that will help Naomi succeed in 2023 and beyond. We are excited to follow up with Naomi through the next year and update you on her progress. To help us make sure Naomi finishes high school, click the link below.
