Kirabo’s Story

    Kirabo lives with her mother, who raises three children on her own.  Her father left to look for work when she was four months old and never returned to the family so she does not know her father at all.  They live in a small one room mud hut.  Her mother works hard preparing cassava in the early mornings to sell to people going to work however it is an unreliable income and never enough to fulfill all the needs of the family.  Her mother worries about her children and how she will be able to educate them when she struggles to just pay rent and buy food. Her dream is to send her children to school so they can have a bright future and succeed in life.
