She didn’t go to school for two years.
Thanks to the Sambat Trust Scholarship, Kristel returned to school last year.
Last year was not easy for her.
She was often teased for being much older than her classmates; but she was determined to continue her studies.
Sambat Trust offered Kristel the opportunity to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS) program, so she would be in the correct school year come June 2018.
She grabbed the opportunity.
On top of school, Kristel attended the local ALS program every Saturday for five months.
Now she’s with classmates of the same age and feels much happier at school.
Last year taught Kristel a lot.
She showed courage and perseverance.
And we’re very proud of her.
