Maryline Brenda Achieng’s educational journey embodies resilience in the face of adversity, yet her path is threatened by the weight of accumulated fee arrears.

Raised by her sister, Emily Judith Akoth, after being orphaned at just nine months old in Kisumu, Maryline’s story reflects the struggles many young students endure in pursuit of education in Kenya.

Despite financial constraints, Emily has endeavored to provide for Maryline’s schooling, even as she herself navigates the challenges of single motherhood and caring for seven other siblings.

Maryline’s academic prowess shone through despite frequent setbacks of being sent home for fees.

Excelling in her KCPE exams, she earned a coveted spot at Achego Girls High School, thanks to the intervention of Dr. Joshua Oron, the local Member of Parliament.

However, the burden of fee arrears has cast a shadow over Maryline’s aspirations.

Despite her determination to excel, the recurring financial strain has forced her to miss school frequently, affecting both her academic performance and her morale.

With her outstanding balance nearing KSh 120,000, Maryline finds herself at a crossroads, considering drastic measures such as seeking employment as a maid to raise funds for her education.

Emily, deeply concerned for her sister’s future, has issued a heartfelt appeal for assistance.

As the second term approaches and additional levies loom, Emily fears that Maryline’s dreams of completing her education may be shattered without timely intervention.
