Naomi is a polite girl from Tharaka-Nithi County in Eastern Kenya. She lives with her both-parents, five brothers and four sisters. They fetch water from a nearby river which is not clean thus exposing the family to water borne diseases for instance typhoid. They live in a mud-walled, iron sheets roofed house which is smeared with cow-dung. Her parents are subsistence farmers. They grow drought-resistant crops basically cereals and legumes on their one acre piece of land. The crops hardly do well due to poor rainfall thus their farm yields are usually very little to earn substantial income for the family. To supplement income, they burn charcoal for sale on market days which are scheduled once per week. They get less than 324 US Dollars annually, which is not enough to cater for the family essential needs. Therefore, the mother came in our office to seek assistance.
Naomi has not yet joined school because she is too young. She likes playing with homemade toys and balls. Your sponsorship will be a stepping stone towards her bright 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.
