Achola Christine lives with her mother in a small village near Agwata. She is the youngest of six children. Her father was abducted when her mother was pregnant with her and his whereabouts have never been known since then.
Achola was the top performing girl in her class of 32 students last year. Her mother supports her education but unfortunately has little money herself to help her. Achola is a very disciplined and obedient girl and hopes to study hard in secondary so she can do Nursing and help uplift the status of her family financially.
At home, Achola likes cooking and fetching firewood in addition to washing clothes and smearing the house with cow dung. In her free time, she plays netball with her friends. She’s also gifted in singing.
Annual sponsorship cost is $650. Achola needs either one sponsor to pay the full cost or two sponsors to share the cost at $325 each for secondary school fees, some supplies and other sponsorship benefits. This amount can be paid annually, by term at $217 ($108) per term, or via monthly credit card payment of $55 ($27) per month. Additional optional amounts up to $300 total may be contributed during the calendar year as a special family gift.
