Veisha (15) lives about 26 km from Achungo with her parents, twin brother and an older and a younger brother. She attended Mwamba Primary and was brought by her father to Achungo’s school at Imbo in 2017 for 5th grade. They had heard about Achungo’s academic performance.
Veisha told us, “I like the teachers here, they teach well and are kind, the school buildings are great, and the library is good. Many people are helping and kind.” At home she helps her parents with the housework, and enjoys eading books, playing football and spending time with her BFF Elizabeth Akoth.
Veisha’s dream is to become a lawyer.
