Quotes from one of our volunteers, Virginia Mwelu, from the Starehe Girls Centre

"Being in the centre has made a big difference in my life and I thank God getting the chance to be part of the centre. I have learnt some skills like bead work - how to make different types of bangles, necklaces, chains among others. This is a skill that is going to help me in my life.

I have also interacted with the girls in class and outside a lot. We have shared our life experiences together. I have known that one must have their goals well set and strive to attain their dreams. Poverty should not be used as an excuse as to why one doesn't achieve their dreams. It is not necessary to be poor to be poor to remain poor.

It was also my first time to be in an informal learning centre and I can now clearly see the importance of such centres. They enable those who did not get a chance to get formal education to  come up with something to help them in their lives. May God bless all those who support the centre to continue touching lives of many."
