Jessey is 15 years old and attends primary school in Machinga, a southern district of Malawi. One of six children, her parents are farmers who work tirelessly to meet the costs of the uniform, books and supplies she needs for school. With food scarce and a daily 7km walk to school, Jessey was at risk of missing out on her education.
But then Camfed stepped in, providing everything she needed to stay in school and supporting a local Mother Support Group to provide students with a daily meal of nutritious porridge. With your support, Jessey is working hard at school and wants to become a journalist:
“I am sure I will achieve my goal because I know that somebody somewhere thinks and cares about my future.”
