Date of Birth: October 9, 2001
Eliene is one of few girls from Tengenenge to have reached A-Level. She is currently doing Advanced level humanities at Kondo Secondary School in Guruve. Her desire is to become the first girl to go to the university from Tengenenge a community where most of the girls get married at an early age. Eliene was born into a family of 9 children comprising 3 girls and 6 boys. The large number of children was a challenge for the family and education was never considered a necessity. Eliene’s parents struggle as their source of livelihood is primarily from subsistence farming. Eline is still deciding whether she wants to do humanities, social sciences or environmental studies at the university after she finishes her Advanced Level studies.
