Scholar since 2011


Katerine is a great student. Many of her siblings have dropped out of school, but Katerine says that she will not follow.

12 year-old Katherine is entering the 7th grade and she is thrilled to be the recipient of a BECAS scholarship. The fifth of six children, Katherine has watched her older siblings drop out of school as they got older. Katherine wants to continue her education. Her teachers say that she always has a calming and shy presence in class.

Katherine lives with her parents, siblings, and niece. Her mother and father work long hours. Often left alone at the house, Katherine does not receive academic help from her family. She attends To Give Hope every day, where the teachers assist her in her homework and tutoring.
