About

Genesis lives with her mother and older brother in a rented room on the outskirts of the city. Her father abandoned the family some years ago. They share a kitchen and a bathroom with other families. Her mother works selling food to local people when she can, but she has severe health problems and often cannot work. Genesis enjoys going to school and has always tried hard to attend regularly. This has not been easy, as she sometimes has to look after her mother when she is ill. The financial and other support Condor Trust has given over the past year has helped, and her first year at secondary school has been successful. Genesis is very keen to do well. She is a mature girl and knows that in the long run education is the best way for her to improve her own and her mother's situation.
