Raising Phillip, the aspiring teacher in Malawi
Asiyileni dropped out of secondary school because her parents could not afford to pay for her school fees. Despite working hard on their farm where they produced maize, her family did not earn enough to make a living. "My parents were poor farmers. We struggled a lot financially, so as soon as I completed my Junior Certificate examinations, I made the tough decision to drop out of school,” recalls Asiyileni.
