Namuga Agatha – Sponsored

is an 11-year-old girl who hopes to be a doctor

Agatha lives with with her mother, two older sisters and one brother in Kagavu village in a single rented room. Her father abandoned the family and disappeared. The family has a small piece of land on which they grow crops for food, but it is not even enough for the family most of the time. The mother does casual labor on a seasonal basis, so most of the time, they fail to get their basic needs (such as food and clothing) met. Getting an education is also a major challenge because the children can only afford to go a couple days per week, if at all. Agatha has dreams to become a doctor but that will be challenging without sponsorship.
