P - 1 class at Ambassadors of Hope Nursery and Primary School in Luwero, Uganda
Margret is a cheerful nine year old girl from a ‘street family’ of eight children, where she is the third born.
Due to dire poverty, her parents could not afford to take Margret and her siblings to school, hardly could they afford one meal a day.
During a street outreach, our field team sited Margret and her sister, Leah working on the streets of Kampala during school time. She was blacksmithing with her parents, who make pans and locks for sale. Given the work environment, Margret was exposed to risks of life-threatening injuries and health complications from hazardous child labor. This led to the rescue of and Margret and Leah.
Through our sponsorship program, Margret is able to attain an education and she is currently in Primary one. Her favorite subject is English, no wonder she loves reading stories.
Your support will help to keep Margret in school.
