Oumou Berete is from a Muslim family and a Mandingo girl. She lives with her parents in a distant village from the interior. The family does farming for their living and yields 250USD as annual income. This income is very little to meet their current needs thus this family is living in extreme poverty. Meal is observed in this family two times daily whilst staying in their seven roomed cemented house. No electricity and very poor sanitation in this village.
Oumou is an intelligent girl enrolled in primary school. She wants to become a doctor. She is a kid at her age who likes playing with local toys. Oumou spends her night in a little bed under a mosquito net. The mother of this child makes sure the she is well dressed. Contributing on this child's education will be a privilege to develop hope for the future.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
