MERCY KARIMI

Ethi Polytechnical School, Hairdressing Program

 Mercy is a 22-year-old girl who dropped out of Leparua Secondary School in Form 2 in 2016 due to pregnancy. Mercy was forced to flee her family after becoming pregnant. She hasn’t been able to go back to school since having her child due to expensive school fees and not being able to provide food for her children. Mercy is incredibly bright and frequently volunteers as SAWA’s translator. She spends her free time reading English books and studying.

Thank you to her sponsor Mercy has returned to Ethi Polytechnical School to begin the hairdressing program. She hopes to use this skill to provide for her family in the future.
