Mirembe Josephine – sponsored

is an 11-year-old girl who hopes to attend school

Josephine always has a smile on her face. She loves everyone, but especially babies. She likes music, dance, drama and enjoys athletics to occupy her time. Her family lives in a rented home. Her father does not take care of the family due to struggles with alcohol. He leaves all of the familial responsibilities to Josephine’s mother whom he abuses almost every day when she asks for food. Her mother is a migrant casual laborer on other people’s farms and occasionally cooks food to sell at the market. Because she gets sick often, this causes Josephine to fail to attend class regularly.
