Situation:  Gabriel’s mother, Sheila, is a single mother of 3 children, Gloria (Form 3), Gabriel, and Beryl (baby class). They live with Gabriel’s grandmother, Ruth, on 5 acres. Ruth has 6 children of her own and shares the 5 acres among 4 of her children. Ruth pays for Gloria’s high school education and does small scale farming to provide for the family. Gabriel’s mother also sells vegetables to help provide for the family. Sheila dropped out of school after class 7 and she has been sick most of her life with an unknown illness, which was treated traditionally. Her body used to swell and she could not move. Gabriel’s grandfather passed away in 1997 from a car accident. Gabriel would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
