Sarah imagines a bright future for her seven children, but she is not sure if it will ever become a reality.
Sarah has been through more than most in her 38 years, losing her husband and three of the 10 children she’s carried. Now a widow, she does what she can to build a better life for her seven surviving children – all on her own. She believes education holds the key to a richer life – for her children and herself.
She farms her land and the land of others in the village to support her family, but it is still not enough. She scrapes together what she can to pay school fees, but only her three oldest boys go to school. She dreams of learning to read and write so she can be an example to her children.
She often goes hungry in hopes her children have enough to eat, but many of her children lay down at night with rumbling stomachs.
When Sarah is worried about filling her children’s bellies, there isn’t much time to think about education. But you can help change that.
With you by her side, worries of hunger can be replaced by seeing Sarah and her children thrive in the classroom.
