Ferister’s father abandoned the family years ago when she was only one and a half years old. They have heard that he has since remarried but he is not in contact with them and does not offer them any support.

Despite having no education or training, Ferister’s mother needed to provide for her three daughters. A kind friend taught her some basic tailoring skills, and she managed to learn enough to get some sewing work. For a while, a head teacher at a nearby school gave the family a room to live in so that Ferister’s mother could repair students uniforms but unfortunately they had to vacate due to COVID-19. The family is now staying with a friend while their mother desperately looks for sewing work to earn a living, and she simply cannot afford school fees for her children.

Ferister and her older sister Annet need sponsorship to attend school, and if she is able to finish her education she would love to become a teacher.

About my country:
Uganda
Known as the “Pearl of Africa”, Uganda is located on the shores of Lake Victoria in the Great Lakes region of East Africa. Since emerging from decades of civil war and the devastation of AIDs, estimates indicate that 48% of Uganda’s population is below the age of 15. Young children suffer disproportionately in the struggle to access healthcare, education, and clean water.
