Anne Kaleji dreamed of becoming a lawyer, but she was at home because her parents couldn’t afford the fees to send her to school. Through Welcome the Children, Anne successfully completed grades K-8 at AIC Zion School. She excelled in her eighth grade exams, scoring among the highest in her region and among the top performers nationally. She is now in her third year at State House Girls High School, one of the best secondary schools in the country.
