Situation: Sophia’s father, George, is a barber in a local shopping centre and her mother helps in the kitchen at the school. Occasionally, her mother also does hair. They live in a studio near Eldoret. They have 3 kids, Raynard (class 4), Sophia (class 3), and Zakary (top class). Sophia’s mother dropped out of class 8 and her father graduated high school, but never went to college. Sophia would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
