Ruth started a course in Tailoring on her own but had to drop out due to lack of school fees. We are thankful for Ruth’s persistence to keep on trying and are privileged to partner with her in her apprenticeship in Tailoring. Ruth is able to pay 20% and Hearts of Hope is paying 80% of her school fees. Ruth’s hope is to be able to improve her family’s standard of living.

Here is Ruth’s story in her own words: “My name is Ruth. I was born in Kiambu County, Kahuho village in a family of ten children, being the sixth born. I went to Kamongoni Primary School and completed Standard Eight. I later joined Kahuho High School where I studied for only one year. I dropped due to lack of school fees. I worked as a house help for one year and that is when I met my husband and got married. Since then I have been working in the farm at Matathia in our home. I am a mother of five children and I am a born again Christian.”
