Meet Maryam Mrash, a bright and determined 17-year-old orphan, who has been through more challenges in her young life than most can imagine. Maryam was born on November 18, 2005, in the humble town of Kaloleni sub-location, Kenya. She is the eldest of six siblings and currently a Form 3 student at Mwatate Mixed High School. Despite the hardships life has thrown her way, Maryam’s spirit remains unbroken.
Maryam’s family has faced unimaginable difficulties. Her father, David Mutua Kithuku, still alive but struggling to make ends meet, and her mother, Shalet Tunda Mwasunga, passed away due to cholera. Their main source of income is farming, but their lives have been upended by the unpredictability of the weather. The lack of rains has led to poor harvests, making it incredibly challenging for the family to provide for their children.
Maryam’s educational journey is a testament to her determination. Despite the financial hardships, she has managed to reach Form 3, proving her commitment to securing a brighter future for herself and her family. She understands that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, and she refuses to let adversity hold her back.
