Adoption - Penina Nzije Odhiambo

Child number: 52977
Not adopted
City, quarter: Kamasengre west Ufira
State: Kenya
Mother: Marry Aoko Obillo, birth 1987, sells fish
Description of the situation: Penina was born in 2009 and she has 3 siblings (Zakayo, Maria and Ishmael). The father who was the only breadwinner in the family died leaving them with the mother who only sells fish to feed the family. Due to her low income, she is unable to provide the family with basic needs in life. Family net income is about 3.200 KSH (32 EUR) per month. The family (in total 5 people) lives in the two roomed mud house. They use kerosene lamps for lighting, get water from the lake and use firewood for cooking. Penina is healthy but she has a small eye problem. Due to lack of food in her family, she sometimes fainted as she was missing energy. From all the reasons above, we decided to take her to the orphanage in our community centre Island of Hope, where she will have regular food, a place to sleep and friends to play with. She really likes football. In school she prefers Science, Mathematics and English. In the future she would like to be a pilot. In summer of 2021 she will start to attend class 4 in Island of Hope Humanist School. Her adoption costs 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR per school term (the amount covers school fees, accommodation, food and governess in an orphanage as well). Will you help her to study and to get a better future in her life?
