Ruth
Ruth lives with both of her parents. Her family is going through a tough time as both of her parents are currently jobless. This pushes Ruth to work even harder in school. Her favorite subjects are physics, biology, accounting, and mathematics. When she graduates she hopes to go into engineering or journalism.
Esther
Esther lost her mother, father, grandmother and aunt to Ebola. Her parents were petty traders and her grandmother was a teacher.  She was literally in charge of her younger brother—an Ebola survivor—and sister, Juliana, until they came to the Dream Home.   Her dream is to become a lawyer.
Entito
Sixteen-year-old Entito is a Maasai girl living in Kenya. She is the youngest girl in a family of 7 children. She loves to garden and help her mom cook. In the future, she wants to become a lawyer and build a supportive home for the children in her community who live in the streets.
"Education is a way of acquiring skill and knowledge either formally or informally, women are seen as a tool to do domestic work by men which is total bad and wrong concept. We need to give them a chance to get education as means of challenge unfair expectation what an educated man can do in the community can be done by an educated woman too, educated women are the peace maker in the country."
