Ashley is a student whose ambition of furthering her education was in limbo before Kuza Dada stepped in. Below is her story:
My name is Ashley Alusa, I am 15 years old the second born in the family four childern. Am in form two at our Lady of Mercy, Shauri Moyo Secondary Girls School.
I did my Kenya certificate of primary education in 2018 at St. Michael Primary School, and attained a mean grade of C+. My chances of joining high school were very minimal since my father had lost his job. My mother is a casual laborer, whose wages is barely enough to meet our daily basic needs. Life has been very difficult for both of us since my father lost his job. Sometimes we would go to school without eating anything.
