A loan of $725 helped to purchase and run two Fresh Life toilets.

Jackline's story

Jackline describes herself as a "teacher by talent, not by training." She single-handedly started the Jaombi Foundation School four years ago to give back to her community. As a young orphan, Jackline received a sponsorship for her education, a life-changing event she cites often as the source of her ambition. Wanting other orphaned and single-parent children to have access to an education just like she did, Jackline rented a small room and began to take on students. Today, the Jaombi Foundation employs seven teachers and has 155 students from ages 5 to 14.

In addition to being a teacher and school principal, Jackline is an advocate for the environment. She wants a Fresh Life toilet close by her school so the area will be cleaner and her students will live healthier lives.

Jackline hopes to expand the school to cater to more students, offer technical training beyond the secondary level, and offer a lunch program, since many of her students come to school hungry. Ultimately, Jackline would like to return to college to finally be "officially" trained as an educator - but Sanergy suspects she'll be the one teaching the course.
