“When I got my scholarship from DFN I was so happy and glad; my family also felt great. After my father died our financial condition deteriorated, so I am having difficulties with managing my finances. I am currently on a community placement, having the opportunity to give health education about hand-washing, family planning, birth spacing, waste management, sanitation, and the importance of child immunisation.”
