Peninnah Atieno Odhiambo

“I was orphaned an early age and I could not afford to continue with my education. I got married to escape problems. I got my first child but I still had a huge urge to go back to school. I talked to my husband and despite his meagre income; he enrolled me to Form 1 in 2009 at Kitmikai Day Secondary School. It was a challenge to take care of my young family and do my school work but I was determined to achieve my dreams. I qualified for FAWE’s scholarship in Form two and scored a grade C+ in form 4 KCSE exams. I am now at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University. The FAWE Reproductive Health programme taught me to be responsible with my life and now I know how to take charge. Thank you FAWE, I will forever be grateful.”
