Dolphine’s positive outlook on life was sparked by the promise of the Hatua programme. She worked hard to become the top performing girl at her primary school and gained a place at her dream secondary school, Alliance Girls – one of Kenya's highest ranked secondary schools for girls.

Dolphine has a relatively stable home life compared to some of the other Hatua students, but her mother doesn’t have a job and her father earns less than 3,000 Kenyan shillings per month. This wouldn’t be enough to pay her school fees and feed the family without the support of the Hatua programme.
