Being the first born in my family, I decided to drop out of school and help my mother full time do farming to raise money for our upkeep and school fees for my three sisters and one brother. Racheal: What inspired you to join non-formal education? Vian: My passion for building and construction. This became easy and possible when Professor Kasenene employed my mother to work in his farm.
