Priscilla and Anita

Priscilla Adu is 19 years old. She and her older sister, Anita Barnie, come from a family of four siblings. Priscilla is currently a freshman studying sociology, social work and religions at the university of Ghana, Legon—Accra. Anita is a second-year student learning a BS in Natural Resource Management at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology at Kumasi, Ghana. While their father is alive, the family continues to struggle every day to pay their tuition fees and bills. This is because for more than 10 years, their father has been jobless due to an acute form of diabetes and heart complications. Previously, he was the principal breadwinner in the family. Their mother is without any stable source of income. These brilliant and talented girls suffer the pain and humiliation of being sent home constantly because they cannot pay their fees. These very gifted sisters finished high school thanks to the benevolence of well-wishers. Unfortunately, these generous people cannot support their college education. If we cannot help them, it is likely that they will not be able to finish school.
