Description of the situation: Super Diana was born in 2007 and has three older siblings: Fredrick is married, Felix ended up dropping out of school, sister Judith (2009). Their mother ended up getting a divorce and remarrying. Their stepfather is a fisherman and their mother sells vegetables. The family lives in a mud house that has three rooms. The family’s net income is 4,100 KSES. For cooking they uses firewood and charcoal and get water from the lake nearby. For lighting they use kerosene and solar powered lamps. The mother cannot financially support Diana's education and therefore she send her to live with a friend who paid it. She gets to see her mother only on weekends. That is why we accept her in our orphanage Island of Hope in 2022. In the same year she finnished primary school and she gave birth to her baby. Diana was very interested in continuing with her studies, so her mother took care of the baby. Diana was therefore able to continue at Humanist Mixed Boarding School Island of Hope. In 2024 she should continue in the second year. Unfortunately, she has lost her adoptive parent, so we are looking for a new one for her, so she could continue her studies. Some of Diana’s hobbies are reading and athletics. Academically, Diana enjoys Kiswahili, English and her social studies courses. She would like to become a journalist one day. She needs support of 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR per school term (16.800 CZK/ 660 EUR per year).

The project of remote support „Adoptions of African children“ mediates an access to education for poor Kenyan children without pulling them out of their natural environment and community. This project has been running since 2002 and has helped more than 3500 children. School fees at primary school are CZK 7200 (€300) / year, and at secondary school, college and orphanage are CZK 16800 (€660). The payment can also be broken down into multiple instalments.
