So Elizabeth can achieve her goals without burdening her parents and can provide greater opportunities for younger siblings to attend school.

This program gives great hope for her and her family. They are very happy because Elizabeth can attend lectures and achieve her goals. Elizabeth said, "But the excitement and hope is still dependent on the kindness of all of you. I depend on your generosity to lend me money for school fees.
