Name of child: Student NS
Age: 16 years old
Place of Residency: Nabutiti village, Kabosi parish-Bukuya sub/county
Mother: Abandoned after the death of her father when she was just 2 years and he has never been seen again.
Guardian: Guardian NT (Paternal grandmother aged 65)
School status: Attending school (St Thereza Kkungu S.S.S)
Class: Secondary class form II
Home environment: Poor household and grandmother sells local blew from which she struggles to raise her fees.
Lives in a two room mud house with inadequate aeration for good health.
They stay eight in the two room house and 3 of the children are orphans while the 4 are her own children.
Major Problems at home: Leaves on a small piece of land with limited space for cultivating food and thus causing food shortage for the family. Sylvia’s grandmother hires land in a distant area where she grows food to feed her seven member family. Sometimes she is forced to sell of a small amount of the harvest to raise some money to buy school items like uniform and books for Sylvia.
Progress:With the supporting funds collected from project Youth Spark we have been able to enroll Sylvia back again into school and purchase some of the basic school supplies for her to continue her education.
