[Meet: Sheila]

DSCN6737[1]Meet Sheila. She has four siblings which includes a brother who is 4 and three sisters ranging in age. Their mother came to Kibera seeking a safer environment from the civil unrest and riots that were happening in her village area about ten years ago and they have been in Kibera ever since. The family struggles with being able to have all children in school and make ends meet at the same time so their mother is partnering with Acacia of Hope International and a sponsor.

Thanks to the sponsor, Sheila is able to be in school with one of her older sisters (Scouvia) who is also being sponsored. Both of these girls will be able to spend time together in school to encourage one another along the way and bring about change to their family and community one day.
