He used to do little jobs in the construction field. After her father's death, her mother abandoned the children and disappeared to an uncertain part until today. No one knows if she is alive or not. Rosa went to live with her uncle. His work is helping the fishermen pulling the nets. With the salary he earns, he is not able to sustain all the needs of his family. If the girl will not get support, she will have to stop studying.

    Kenya

    Isaac is the fourth born child in a family of six children. He has a twin brother called Muinde Nzingi. Their parents are divorced and have deserted the children. The children live with a guardian (Florence) who takes care of them. The main challenge is that the guardian family has a big family of their own (comprised of seven children) to fend for therefore limiting their ability to support these adopted children. The first and the second born brothers of Isaac completed form four in 2014 through support of well-wishers. The third born is currently in form four at the Mbaikini School and is supported by the guardian family. Isaac did his primary exam in 2014 and passed well with 359 marks and has been admitted at The Mbaikini school. Isaac is a very bright and is among the best top performing students. He is very determined to join secondary school and study hard to be an accountant in future.
