My name is Peres Justine Munanka, I am 17 years old, one of the pioneers of Kitenga Girls Secondary School and a volunteer with Girls Education Collaborative (GEC). My experience with GEC has made my time worthwhile during the wait to join in my next level of schooling and I am so thankful to God for such an opportunity.
I am so happy to volunteer for GEC as it has empowered me in many ways and it still strengthens me. I have learned so much and it has encouraged me to keep learning and researching what I am interested in. Also, volunteering with GEC has been a pathway from which I have met and gotten to know people that I did not know before. I even got to join World Pulse and publish my story, which got recognized, read it here. All this is thanks to GEC. I am so happy that I had an opportunity to volunteer for GEC and I sincerely look forward to volunteering for them in the future. I am always glad to get an opportunity to make our school recognized and I would be happy to volunteer again for Kitenga Girls Secondary School.
