Agyei is seventeen years old and lives with his eight siblings. Agyei is an excellent student who one day aspires to be a successful banker. Agyei’s father is handicapped due to bad health. Now, all financial and domestic responsibilities have shifted on to Agyei’s mother. Agyei’s parents are finding it extremely difficult to cater their son’s educational needs because he has to share the little resources his families has with his eight other siblings. Agyei is often dropped from school because he is unable to pay his school fees. Because of this inconsistency in school attendance, Agyei is falling behind on his academic efforts and struggles to keep up with his peers. Agyei dreams of a scholarship so that he can go to school continuously and focus on his studies rather than fears of being dropped.
