Erica is 9 years old and is very dedicated student at The Pearls School. To be able to become a Bank Manager in the future, Erica needs a good education. she is very poor and depends on her carer, but due to lack of financial support she has found it difficult to maintain good grades. Sadly, Erica is an orphan, as her mother passed away about five years ago and her father disappeared during her mother's pregnancy, Erica has no other means of help and is grateful for your support.


Erica is a diligent student, but impoverished with no parents. Her caretaker lives in the community and is poor with little wages, so not able to send Erica and her children to a good quality school. With your help you continue to make a real difference to Erica through regular school attendance, provision of tuition fees, books, and uniform, home feeding support, school launch and health insurance and make her be part of her community. Erica needs support to attend school in 2014.

Long-Term Impact

Erica is very hardworking and her future in education looks promising. For girls, the choices when you are poor is to work in low paid, menial jobs at a young age or be sent away for marriage. Erica needs urgent help so that she can grow up with an education and break the poverty cycle. This project will create a better future for Erica so she can secure employment and support herself.
