After experiencing the power of poverty, my parents decided to send me, their first-born son, to Chimutu Primary School. I did my standard 1 to 5 there. The school’s headmaster then sent me to Kanyandule Primary School because there was no standard 6 to 8 in Chimutu. I passed my primary exams very well and was selected to Kang’oma Secondary School. My parents were happy for me, but worried: Where would they find school fees to pay for their son?

It felt like I was entering the door of heaven when we heard that I had been selected to be part of Good Soil Partners. This selection answered my parents’ questions. Good Soil Partners helped me by providing school fees and materials as well as good advice during secondary school. I passed my secondary exams very well and got selected to attend Chancellor College. I currently am studying for my bachelor of science degree in physics. Good Soil Partners continues to support me with school fees, upkeep money, and school materials. To tell the truth, without Good Soil Partners my parents would suffer a lot to find money for my education at college level.
