Sylvia is a 16-year-old girl who is just a couple of years away from graduating from Lweru Secondary School in Buiwke, Uganda. She has had to transfer schools a few times but continues to out perform most of her other classmates, performing well on all tests. She spends most of her time outside of school caring for her grandmother who needs to be monitored for high blood pressure. This has inspired Sylvia with the desire to one day become a nurse. She hopes to take nursing classes if she is able to continue her education.
With your help, we can send Sylvia to school for a year! 100% of your donation goes directly to MCODE as a grant to allow her to attend school. If our fundraising goal is met, Sylvia will be provided with school fees, books, pens, and a hot daily meal at school. Send Sylvia to school by donating today!
