I am Evelynn Ndiwasi. I was admitted in form 1 in the year 2015. I reported late because I had been forced
into an early marriage with an old an at only 13 years of age after my parents accepted dowry from him. I was
rescued because of your effort and I am now one of the best students in Ng'ombeni Girls Secondary School. I came with
minimal entry marks but I am among the top ten in my class today. I was proposed and elected as he school president because of my exemplary determination, friendliness and leadership qualities. Thank you for rescuing me and bringing me to school.
