Challenge

An 8 year old poor Vira who was born on 2nd June 2006, is a kind girl that has been abandoned by her father and lives with her mother, who raises Vira alone. Vira is presently attending school Winners Family School in Gbawe. She is in Class 2 and currently in need of help to stay in school. Her mother recently got a job in Gbawe community with monthly of income of $50 , with this income Vira's mother tries to maintain the home and see to her education. It is barely enough to pay the school fee

Solution

Vira is a diligent student, but impoverished with a single mother. For about a dollar a day, or a one-off donation, you can give her a chance to stay in school and live a normal life. PAAJAF can also provide for her wellbeing with basic needs food, clean water, health care and nutritious food. With your help, you will make a real difference to Vira's through regular school attendance, provision of tuition fees, books, and uniform, home feeding support, school launch and health insurance.

Long-Term Impact

Vira 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. Vira 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 Vira so she can secure employment and support herself.
