Cynthia (13) joined Achungo 2 years ago entering 6th grade. She was living near Director Nyangi’s village of Kager with her elderly, disabled father and her brother (20). Cynthia had to drop out of school to help support the family by working in the sugar cane fields until we found her and brought her to Achungo. She says of Achungo:”I like the way the teachers are teaching. The learning is higher (than in the public schools).”
Cynthia enjoys playing netball and her favorite subject is Math. Her ambition is to become a journalist: ”to go and get information and tell people about it.”
Cynthia attends Magare Girls Secondary School.
