Bright Future for a Bright Young Lady

Nagmo comes from a poor family in a remote village. Her parents both worked hard until her mother had to undergo a surgery, leaving most of the responsibility of earning a living to her father. This left the family in dire financial difficulty. Because of this, Nagmo had to drop out of school after finishing grade 8.

Nagmo is a bright young lady who loves to learn. That’s why she is extremely grateful for getting the chance to return to school. She entered the Vocational School Scholarship Program in 2018, taking up Nursing. She shares her experience.

“When I first returned to school, I didn’t have clear plans of what I wanted to do in the future. Now, even my family says that I’ve changed a lot. I’ve become more optimistic and determined to reach my goals. This coming semester, I aim to pass the Nursing Qualification Certificate. I’ve reached out to other students who have passed the qualification exam before so I can be the most prepared I can be.

When the start of school was delayed due to the corona virus outbreak, I volunteered to disinfect the campus – working with other volunteers, cleaning the school, and helping prevent further spread of the virus. I’m glad to have been part of such a meaningful experience.

Thank you for all your kindness and support. Your help gave us hope and the opportunity to survive. Words cannot express how grateful I am.”

Nagmo is one of the 264 girls currently enrolled in the Vocational School Scholarship program. Thank you to ZURU for funding half of this life-changing program and thank you to Lilianna W for sponsoring Nagmo so she can finish her schooling.
