From Daughter to Mum and Dad

From Daughter to Mum and Dad

Written by Bernadette Wasike, HHFL’s alumnus

Dear Mama Hanne and Baba Ted,

I hope this finds you in perfect health. I miss you dearly and it’s been so long since I last saw you. I am writing to thank you for funding my education. I cannot express how grateful I am to you and HHF. It’s been 8 years since I joined HHFL. Back in 2011, I was only 14 years and very shy. Now I am 23 years and I am a very confident young woman. I can express myself in front of crowds and conduct myself with utmost respect because of the values you taught me at HHFL.

I have just completed my 4 year course in horticultural science and set to graduate in November. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would go to high school let alone study for a degree but through your assistance and kindness all these has been possible. As I write this I am very emotional because so many kids in my country don’t get a chance to get quality education but you gave me an opportunity to study. Throughout these 8 years I was never sent home for school fees or books! You provided everything for me and on top of that during school holidays you helped me discover my strengths and my talent.

I am currently looking for internship opportunities before I graduate in November. I will work very hard and I will not disappoint you. I will support my little brothers and sisters at HHFL in whatever way I possibly can. Thank you again for your great support in my education.

Regards,
Bernadette
