Personal and Family Information
After both of her parents died, Polly and her two younger brothers and three younger sisters went to live in the Kakira slum outside of Kampala, Uganda. No family or friends stepped forward to care for the children. The children started a hair salon to generate income for school fees, house rent, and food. They didn’t have enough resources and training, however, to compete with other salons, so their business went under and they ended up homeless and hungry.
A woman who is a microloan beneficiary in our Kampala project introduced Polly to Hope Ofiriha. Since then, Hope Ofiriha has been providing for the children’s basic needs and working to find Polly a sponsor. Polly needs your love and support, so she can complete her “A” level studies, continue on to university, and help her siblings escape a life-time cycle of poverty. She hopes to become a nurse or doctor who will be able to help many people in the future. Your monthly support will pay her school fees and provide her with food, clothes, and medical care.
