She is HIV positive and a widow too. She never got a chance to go to school in her life.

Concerning See Them Grow Foundation (STGF)
She is grateful to STGF for stretching out a helping hand to help some of her children attain quality education. She has great hope that surely her children’s studies will go on non-stop and
these children in return, will help us all in future. She thanks STGF for helping out because independently, she would not completely manage.
