“I am staying with my mother, six sisters, and four brothers. My father left us because of the big number of the family and blamed my mother for lack of family planning.”

Violet comes from a big family. She has always been the leader in her family, though she is one of the younger ones. She pursued the Bakashana offices tirelessly seeking assistance. Now we have agreed to help her follow her dreams, and seek a sponsor to lead the way!

Chileshe Chanda

Chileshe is a shy but tenacious young woman in grade 8. Her family lives in a shanty compound on the outskirts of town, living a rural existence (grass thatch house, cooking over fire, no running water or electricity) in an urban area which makes life tough for her and her three siblings. During holidays she goes to help her grandparents farm. She is trying her best at school and hopes to be the first in her family to finish grade 12.

“I didn’t have enough money to go into grade 8 so I started selling vegetables with my step -mother to save both for school and for food. At home we live without electricity which means we use candles for light and sometimes we don’t have enough money for candles.”

““I want to help poor people. Sometimes poor people have to work too hard, and I see my people suffering and I feel very bad.”

Priscilla will complete high school in 2023. Her Mother supports her and her three younger siblings by farming and gardening, but it is difficult for her to manage to pay school fees. Priscilla wrote a very high score on her national exam and her mother walks 7 miles to and from their home to our offices three times a year to bring us Priscilla’s report form. When she finishes school she wishes to become a teacher.
