Situation: Brenda’s mother passed away in 2013
leaving behind 8 children. Gladys, Brenda's older sister, tried for several years to keep the whole family together and to keep the
children educated. Some of the older siblings had dropped out of school and left behind her and the family. Gladys has three children of her own that she is trying to raise. In order to pay for food and school fees a year ago she sold 1/2 of their land and that is the reason
they live on a very small piece of property.
"My name is Brenda. I am 10 years old and from Eldoret, Kenya. I like going to school because I learn to read and write. When I grow up, I would like to be a nurse."
