"My Story" gives beneficiaries of Uweza programs the opportunity to tell their own story about their experience with Uweza. Today's story is written by Yvonne Chanzu Jandi, a 13 year-old student participating in Uweza's after-school tutoring program since May. She plans to become an engineer and also wants us to know that she loves her best friend, Catherine Achieng.

Uweza has led me to become a very nice person. It has led me to a life that I never imagined. The tuition program has helped me improve my marks from 250 to 300 marks. I have always prayed that I can pass my compositions so that I can help the needy in my country and I know that I will pass my examinations come the end of the year in the name of the great God. I am sure Uweza will make my dreams come true.
