Lyna, A 17-year-old girl whose future is at stake.

 

Losing her dad at 9, her mother a year later, and being the first born in a family of six would have been enough for her to quit hoping. But Lyna, a Form One student at Msalura Community Day Secondary School is not giving up.Lyna Rajab 17, lives with her poor ailing grandmother.

Lyna Rajab 17, lives with her poor ailing grandmother. For her first term’s tuition, her granny had to sell one of her two goats, with hope that some organisation would help the second term, but that failed.

As they were selling the second goat that they pay for this term’s school fees, the Malawi National Examinations Board Examinations released its second selection list and Lyna has been selected to Salima Secondary school.

As I write, Lyna has until the end of March to report to her new school or her place will be declared vacant.

Lyna walks over five kilometres from Gwilize to her current school Msalura CDSS every day. And to reach her school, she has to cross Linthipe River, which is now making it hard for her to go school because of the rains; the river is flooding.

Lyna is a bright girl. She is the only girl one to be selected to a boarding secondary school this year from her community. Lyna has the potential to become a role model, not only to her five siblings but also her community where

Before this term ends on 7th April, Lyna needs school fees (K46, 000), and other necessities to enable her go to school.

I believe in Lyna’s ability. I am sure once helped she will work hard as her primary school results have shown.

After sharing this story with a friend this afternoon, we have raised K 15,000. We need a few people who can stand with us and help Lyna.

Get in touch if you believe we can get Lyna to Salima secondary school.
