Description of the situation: Sheryle was born in 2004 as the second child in the family of six children, the father does fishing while the mother sells fish. Apart from Sheryle and the siblings, the parents also take care of two other children who are total orphans. The income the parents get is meagre to provide the basic needs in life to the family, monthly net family income is about 6.000 KSH (60 EUR). The family (in total 10 people) lives in three roomed mud house, they get water from the lake, use firewood/charcoal for cooking and kerosene lamps for lighting. Sheryle is doing well, but she is astmathic as well as her siblings Sephy, Ashley and Wishley. Sheryle likes singing and performing theatre, she also likes netball. In school she really enjoys English and Kiswahili, she would like to be a journalist in the future. In July 2021 she started attending form 1 at secondary school in Island of Hope. Unfortunately, costs of secondary schools are higher in Kenya, therefore her adoption costs 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR per school term.
