Zipporah Nzuki’s Story

My name is Zipporah Nzuki. I live in Korogocho and I have attended both primary and secondary school. When I was in primary school in year six, I had to stop my education because my dad had paralyzed half of his body and all of our money went towards his well being. Then when he passed away I was left lonely, a child without her father. This made me see life as very unfair. I felt so bad when I would see other girls go to school and leave me behind. I had a great interest of learning so I decided to ask my mother to request to the headmaster if he could allow me to proceed with school for less money. Luckily, he accepted. When I finished primary school, I really wanted to continue my education but I didn’t know if I would be able to. It was a miracle because it turned out that I was sponsored. I joined form one in Orbit School of the Cross in Kayole. I really enjoyed the music festivals, playing football and the science club the most. Read more »

Jackline Wauye’s Story

My name is Jackline Wauye and I live in Mathare North Area 4. In 2009 I finished my fourth form in Hono Secondary School. I really enjoyed the games, mathematics and geography the most while in high school.

When I first discovered the Hawkers Market Girls Centre, I was told that it was a place that girls like me could further their education. Since I got here, my greatest accomplishments are that I discovered my potential and changed my lifestyle. I also learnt how to use a sewing machine, how to use a computer, how to take care of myself, life skills, catering, accounting and girl guiding. In guiding, I have learnt volunteering services where you do something for someone else without expecting something in return.

Rosemary Wambui’s Story

My name is Rosemary Wambui and I am 19 years old. I live in Huruma near Salama PrimarySchool. After I finished primary school, I made it to secondary school but could not go because my mum did not pay the school fees. I felt very bad because all my friends were going to school. I used to blame my mum and tell her that she is just refusing to pay the school, I did not understand that it was not her fault, she was a single mother and tried hard to carry on all her responsibilities and make enough money for us. I then just stayed home helping my mum with her business. Read more »

Rebecca Minoo’s Story

My name is Rebecca Minoo and I come from Korogocho. I came to the Hawkers Market Girls Centre after I finished schooling at Loma Girls Secondary School and did my national examination KCSE. I did not go to college due to lack of school fees. In school I really enjoyed my biology classes and the musical festivals (English chorals poems) the most.

I had lost hope with my education. I thought I could never continue with my education but my wish came true thanks to the Hawkers Market Girls Centre. I came here through a former student of HMGC. She informed me on how to get here due to my guardians financial status.
