Student Profile - Morine

Morine was brought to the Achego Children’s Home when she was just six weeks old. Her mother passed away from malaria and her father did not feel he could care for her. When she was six years old, she was placed in foster care, but she was still able to participate in the programs at Achego. Shortly thereafter, Morine’s father remarried and stopped providing support. She stayed with the foster family throughout her primary years and did very well in school, but this family could not afford to pay her secondary school fees. Through the EBF, Kenyan government subsidies, and a private educational assistance organization, Morine was able to attend high school and continue her education. Morine hopes to complete her secondary schooling next year and then pursue college education.
