Angel

Angel is 16 years old and attends Sengani Girls High School. She was admitted into the Watoto Wetu project when she was in Class 6.

Her mother was only 18 and newly married when Angel was born. Around the same time, her grandmother also gave birth and died leaving Angel’s mother to care for her own two children, but also five other children her mother had left behind.

When Angel’s mother was 25 years old, her husband abandoned the family, leaving her to care for now eight children on her own. She still sheds tears when telling this story.

It costs about $905 USD per year for Angel’s school fees. Angel’s teachers report that she has great potential.
