THE story by Kapala Chisunka in the Young Mail of March 29, 2018 about 18-year-old Sharon Hanuzyiye’s failures to secure a scholarship made sad reading.
The girl, who obtained seven points at Njase Secondary School, dreams of studying pharmacy.
According to the article, Sharon’s parents are peasants in Magoye, Mazabuka district.
I am appealing to well-wishers and powers that be to take interest in Sharon’s desire to further her education. Remember, if you educate a girl-child, you educate the whole village.
