Personal and Family Information
After Saterina was orphaned, she moved to Kampala, Uganda, to live with her grandmother. When her grandmother died a few years later, she moved in with a Sudanese family headed by a single mother, mama Martha Ayaa. Mama Martha is barely able to support Saterina and her own seven children selling local breweries. Her hand-to-mouth enterprise doesn’t cover her household’s basic needs, and her own seven children do not go to school due to lack of money. In Uganda, parents or guardians must pay school fees to fund school buildings, books, writing materials, school meals, and uniforms.
Saterina helps in the home by cleaning the house and cooking for her host family. Sometimes she works as a house-girl to buy herself clothes. She dreams of becoming a pilot and flying away to a better life. Your monthly support will pay her school fees; provide her with food, clothes, and medical care; and give her a ticket out of poverty.
