"My Story" gives beneficiaries of Uweza programs the opportunity to tell their own story about their experience with Uweza. Today's story is written by Yvonne Chanzu Jandi, a 13 year-old student participating in Uweza's after-school tutoring program since May. She plans to become an engineer and also wants us to know that she loves her best friend, Catherine Achieng.
My name is Vyonne Chanzu Jandi. I live in Kibera Kambi Muru near Darajani village. I live with my mother who is a single mother. At the age of 10, I lost my father and my mother has been the one taking good care of us. I am 13 years old and in class seven at Kibera primary school.
