“I am one of four girls in my family. My father died when I was very young and I do not remember him at all. My mom stays in Moroto with my sister and stepfather but I could not stay with them. My mom is crazy and does not do things right, so I did not stay with her. I used to live with my auntie and grandmother who could try to care for me. Food was not always there and even water was not around. I could buy cassava, cook it and then sell it to people to make money. This money would help me eat and save to go to school.
One day, my cousin Mary that I stayed with met Uncle Emma. They talked to us and took our photos and asked if we wanted to go to school. Some time later, they returned and took us to Peace for Paul. Now life is so nice. We have lots of food and water and there is little illness like before. I go to school and my best subject is math. I want to study so much to get good marks so I can be a nurse someday.”
Sabrina is now attending a top ranked secondary school and studies hard so she can reach her dream of becoming a nurse. Her goal is to become successful enough she can help to support her grandmother someday. During school holidays, Sabrina returns to Moroto and spends time with her beloved grandmother and cousins there. Our Moroto Liaison makes weekly check in visits to Sabrina to ensure she has food, and access to all other necessities while spending time with family.
