Ayugi‘s scored -D2 in Math, English-4, Physics-3, Chemistery-2, Biology-4, History-1, CRE-1 Accounts-2, Geo-3 and Agriculture 2.
She said her grandmother, who has been taking care of her, is too weak to continue paying her school fees, yet she wants to study further.
Ayugi said she wants to combine Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, PCB at A ‘level.
“I have been depending on my grandmother, but she is getting older and can’t do intensive farming to raise money for my school fees,” Ayugi said.
Ayugi and her grandmother Margaret Ayugi are appealing to any well-wisher to help her to continue with her studies.
“The father to my grandchild died many years ago. Her mother is also unable to pay her school fees; so I have been struggling over the years to pay her to school,” the 63- year- old grandmother said.
“I have been raising money from small-scale farming for her education and basic needs, but I now have no energy to till land,” she added.
