Annet's story

Annet's father died when she was young which meant her family were uncertain whether they would be able to pay her school fees so she could complete her education.

That was until Lessons for Life through our partner Child Aid Uganda (CHAU) provided her fees and helped her to stay in school. We supported Annet through her final years of secondary school and helped her to go to college and qualify as a teacher.
