Senior High School: Success Story from the YLF educational Aid for Child Development
On regular bases we tailor our programmes towards developing vulnerable children to live good lives because they are our wealth and hope for the Future. Below is one of our success stories of a vulnerable child called Veronica Agyiriwa Egyiri who is much grateful to the YLF and Miss Luzie Josefine Schmidt-Fischer a German student volunteer, for supporting her education.
The story of Veronica Agyiriwa Egyiri is one that will forever remain in the good books of YLF. This is a young lady who attended a deprived school in Agona Kwansakrom in the Agona East District of the Central Region of Ghana. After Junior High School (JHS) she could not meet her target grades and for that matter could not make it to the school of her choice. With the support of the organization she gained admission to one of the best Senior High Schools in the Central Region; Swedru Senior High School (SWESCO). At the senior high school, the organization ensured that her fees were paid promptly and we provided all that she needed to facilitate her leaning. At the moment, she has won the Best Student Award from the school. She also represents her class during quiz competitions and other activities of the school. In an interview with Veronica, she admitted that inadequate support during her Junior High School affected her grades. She explained that her responsible late father left behind seven children. So she usually thinks a lot about how her school fees could be paid and how to have access to reading materials. Now that all these things are taken care of at the SHS level, she has improved tremendously. This is how we shape children to develop their capabilities so that they can live meaningful live.
Now we also have four other students with similar issue including Veronica’s younger sister who has gotten an admission to the Senior High School (SHS) level but still waiting for our sponsorship to go to school but the YLF has run out of funds due to other responsibilities. So we are using this opportunity to appeal through you to the public (Families and Friends etc.) for assistance.
For further enquiries about these four students or Veronica’s family you can contact the YLF: firstname.lastname@example.org or Miss Luzie Josefine: email@example.com, who actually identified this family to the YLF during her volunteer service in Ghana.
