Graduated Secondary School – Idaya Ntambara

Update: Idaya graduated Secondary school in 2019.

(THIS IS Idaya's ORIGINAL sponsorship application for Secondary school; it has been edited when needed for better understanding.)

I was borne in 2000. My father died when I was 3-years old. He was a pastor in Rutshuru.

In 1996 during the tough war my step-father lost his wife and his first borne and they were killed by AFDL rebels. After 3 years he married my mother and after two years my step-father was also killed when he was attending at burial in the next village called Bunyangula.

Again my mother was a widow. Now she is looking after 12 children including those that were left by my step-father’s first wife. Three of these girls got pregnacy due to poverty and tough life.

Today we only have 5 children in primary school and me who is in Secondary 5 learning pedagogy (teaching). It is hard to get school supplies. To get my fees it is next to impossibility, sometimes it is provided by my mother but most of the time by neighbors.

This is why I humbly request your support.

I my social life I’m a singer in the church.

Thank you, Idaya
