Vallary is 17 years old and the third born in a family of seven children with a single mother. Her father died in floods five years ago, but while he was alive, he caused the family a lot of misery by physically abusing her mother and caring only for his own needs. Vallary’s mother taught herself cobbling skills to provide for her family.

Vallary is in Form 3 at Limuru Girls National High School. She was the best performer in Class 8 with a score of 395 out of 500 and remains in the top 25 of a class of over 300 students. Vallary aspires to be a lawyer and will, no doubt, go far with God’s guidance.

Vallary’s school fees are $960 USD per year.
