This is Munaza.
Both Munaza’s parents have passed away. After her mother died in 2008 of kidney failure she and her brother began to live with her maternal grandparents.
Although she has said her grandparents make her feel like she is looked after, loved and secure – her grandmother works as a teacher and her grandfather is retired, so there isn’t enough income to support all three of them.
Thanks to sponsorship from Orphans in Need, she is fully supported…
She attends Mustafai model secondary school and her fees are paid for by the charity. She is is ambitious, enjoys learning very much and would like to become a doctor when she grows up. She has said she is grateful to her sponsor for making her life easier, and giving her the chance to make a brighter future for herself through education.
