Kenya orphan needs school fees to become lawyer

Hi, my name is Nancy A. I was born in 1994. When my parents died, another family began taking care of me. They treated me like a slave instead of like others in the family. I had to do many, many chores each day. I finally ran away to stay with my grandmother. She is old, but together we care 5 other orphans living with us in a small western Kenya village.

Sometimes I am able to help in the vegetable garden at a nearby orphanage. I like learning how to grow food and sometimes I am able to take some vegetables home to cook. I hope to plant a vegetable garden at home soon with seeds saved from the orphanage garden that Hope In Action helped expand.

I was in secondary school, form 1, but it has been difficult. The school did not permit me to take exams because I was not able to pay the school fees and book expenses. Recently, the school stopped me from attending classes until the fees are paid. I have been able to pay a few shillings for fees sometimes, but my going to class for lessons is on and off because of the school fees. I am very frustrated because I dream of becoming a lawyer.
