Nembris Milya

I know that whatever success I will get in the future is due to the hard work and struggles of my mother.

My name is Nemburis Milya. I come from the Village of Sukuro, Simanjiro, Tanzania. My parents are Titoya and Milya and they have four children who are all girls. My oldest is deaf and mute. She is currently at home and is not married. 
 

In 2010, I was the first one to finish standard seven in my family. Sad to say, I was not selected to continue my secondary education in government schools. With my uncle’s support, he brought me to Emusoi Centre to be interviewed so that I will be able to continue with my secondary education. After a month, the results were released and I was selected.I started my Pre-Secondary education in 2011 and on September 2012, I was selected to join Mwedo Girls Secondary School. My parents, especially my father, were not against my education but they could not afford to send me to school. It was my mother who really strive to send us to primary school. As for my father, he was not against it but he does not really see the value of educating girls. I even heard him say that if my mother will not be able to provide for my bus fare to go back to school, he will organize my marriage. I was angry with my father because I felt he is not doing his responsibility as a father to us. I know that whatever success I will get in the future is due to the hard work and struggles of my mother. If not for her, I could have been married after finishing standard seven. I believe that one day I will be able to give back to my community and change the attitude towards girls’ education.
