Olivia is 13 years old and has reached Primary School level 5 with exam results that suggest she’ll manage secondary level education and obtain enough O-Levels to be able to train as a nurse. Her previous sponsor has had to end her sponsorship, and with that, all the support and encouragement Olivia needs to get to the next level.
Unusually for #KabubbuKids, Olivia lives with both her parents. Like so many others they are involved in farming and struggled during last season’s drought to raise enough income. Tough when there are also four siblings to feed on the land they rent. For many poor parents having lots of children means there’s a chance of plenty of support in old age – just how things used to be in the UK. Could you lift Olivia with sponsorship and letter-writing to that new horizon?

Claire too has experienced loss. When so much is dependent upon a sponsor it’s so hard for a student when that sponsor dies – not only for the loss of the relationship. Claire had just started her first year of secondary school when this happened. To progress to Trust High School she got her best result in maths, and her English and science marks were good too.
Claire has older siblings and her mother Olivia has had to resort in the past to brewing her own form of potent alcoholic drinks to sell locally – with all its undesirable consequences… Could you be Claire’s next sponsor and ensure this cycle of hardship is not repeated?
Edrisa may have lost both his parents and have one dodgy eye, but he is a very lucky lad as he now lives with his smiley granny Veronica. As a very responsible great-granny in her mid-60’s, she wants to make sure her six grandchildren make the most of their education and become responsible for their lives too. The only way she can earn money to support them is casual labouring and making hand-woven mats.
Edrisa at 11 years old needs a sponsor who can give him the security of a regular education. Part-time is not good. Encouraging letters from a sponsor would help him to try a bit harder at school and become the mechanic he dreams of being. He’s a good mid-level student, but who knows how much better he’d do with your support?
