Profile

I come from a family of four girls and one boy. Three years ago my parents died and the Director of Peace School brought me here to live. I don’t know what has become of my sisters and brother, I have not seen them since I came here and I don’t know where they are.
 
I live in the Girl’s Dormitory at Peace School. There are eight other girls here and our teacher Mrs. Oliver.
 
My best friend is Sherin. We pray, talk and study together. On Sunday’s I go with Sherin to church nearby. That is one of the few times I leave the school compound.
 
I like living at Peace School because the teachers are kind and the grounds are kept very clean. Every day we clean our rooms and the playground. We wash our clothes every couple of days.
 
My favorite subject is Science. I hope to be a nurse someday. I would like to help sick people become well. I hope you can help me continue my studies so my dream of being a nurse can come true.
 
Note: Peace Nursery and Primary School is a private school serving orphans and other children unable to afford the costs of attending public schools. As such, it receives no funding from public sources. Located in a suburb of Uganda’s capital city Kampala, the school is in a highly urban setting and must pay for water and sanitation service as well as teacher salaries and facilities. School Supplies include a school uniform, other clothing (underwear and after school clothing), hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, laundry soap, haircuts, etc) medical care, transportation, and entertainment (sports equipment, musical instruments). Educational materials include text books, light for studying at night, pencils, paper, etc. Room and board includes bedding, three meals a day seven days a week, and 24/7 adult supervision.
