Meet Loveness...

Loveness is 11 years old and is in the 5th grade.   She lives in Kenyama and goes to Njatishi community school when she is able to pay her school fees.  Her father died in April from high blood pressure.   Her mother is not working and she often goes to bed without dinner.  Her sister helps them with food sometimes.  She sleeps on the floor in their sitting room.  Her family goes to church at True Worshippers Pentacostal church in Kenyama.  She feels sad when she thinks about her father and often does not feel safe sometimes because he is not there.  She goes to school everyday but is chased away when she is unable to pay her school fees.  She feels very loved by her mother’s friend who took care of her when her mother was away taking care of her father in the village before he died.  Her brother is in prison because the people say that ke has killed people.  He is 19 years old and has been there for 5 months.  She does not believe that it is true because he used to be a good person.  A sponsorship would pay for her to go to school.
