Riyaq Hassan Story
Riyaq Hassan is one of our lucky students to join Sports For Change this year. She was among the top 5 students in her school. She went to Namanga Primary School at the border of Tanzania and Kenya. She got 354 marks which was a very good performance and got a place in Noonkopir Girls’ Secondary School in Kitengela.
She is the firstborn in a family of 9. They have been raised by the mother and a stepdad who is a security man. The dad to Riyaq abandoned her mother before she was born, but the mother has been there for her and the step dad helps where he can.
She wants to work hard and become a doctor and help her community.
“We cannot thank you enough for your continued support. Together we have managed to give a bright future to these awesome kids.”
