The girl in the striped top is twenty years old Peris. She dreams of being a teacher, and although she went to school when she could, and worked hard, her grades were not high enough. It was difficult but in determination she retook the last year of school, and this time achieved the grades needed for college.
Peris is from a family of 15 children, the idea of parents funding college is a non starter. All of this year Peris has been searching for a job to help her fund at least one term……. there are just no jobs around in Miti Mingi. Slowly the light of hope is dimming in her, she can’t see a future. At twenty Peris is being robbed of her dream to teach. If only we had the Youth and Adult Training Centre built we could help her. Sadly she is not alone, all around are young people with little or no hope for the future. We have to find a way to build the Centre.
