Eunice Tepela

Eunice Tepela

Eunice belongs to a family of five siblings, four girls and one boy. Eunice’s father died in 2016 from HIV/AIDS, and her mother struggles to support the family with a job that does not pay enough to send her children to school. Two of Eunice’s sisters have already been married off due to a lack of school fees. Eunice’s uncle, who has been paying for her education, is the only person preventing this fate for Eunice. However, due to financial hardships of his own, he fears he may no longer be able to pay for his niece’s education. Currently a high-performing student in Grade 7 at Orine Primary School, Eunice is working towards her dream of becoming a nurse.
