Namukisa Mariam – Sponsored

is an 11-year-old girl who hopes to be an accountant

Mariam lost her dad so she lives with her elderly mother, three sisters and four brothers. Since Mariam’s father died, her mother struggles to look after her family. Because of the size of the family, her mother fails to provide for the family and has no permanent work. She tries to earn a living through farming, but because their plot of land is so small, it is never enough. Consistent education is challenging for Mariam because she misses terms or a couple of weeks here and there because she cannot pay for her school dues and scholastic materials. Mariam wants to become an accountant at a bank, but without your help, her dream will not come true.
