Meet Quinter Ruth

​Quinter Ruth is 17 years old. She is the first born in a family of five. Her mother is a single parent, she gave birth to her when she was very young and raising her school fees has been a challenge. She is in form four at Ruai girls secondary school and she loves science subjects. She lived with her mother in the village before life became so difficult and she had to run to the city to live with her uncle who is also struggling financially.

Quinter was at the point of dropping out of school when her uncle reached out to the children’s office for support and he was referred to Jali Sisters through the help of the school Principal since the government support deadline had already expired. She is now happy and working hard in her studies.
