Caroline has a poverty stricken mother
Caroline Akinyi Oyoo is 17 years of age. She lives with her widowed mother in kamnara village Bondo. The father John Oyoo Agira had been the sole bread winner in this family before his death. Other siblings include 37 year old Samuel Ochieng (no income), 24 year old Lucy Owino (house help), 22 year old Nancy Akoth (no income), 20 year old George Ochieng (no income), 17 year old Caroline Akinyi (student), 15 year old Moses Otieno (student),
The mother earns USD 8 monthly.
The mother is a charcoal burner earning Kenya shillings 800 monthly from which she clearly cannot support her large family. life is extremely difficult for this family. They have to make do without most basic needs, even a single meal a day is not guaranteed.
Caroline is academically potential.
She went to kamnara primary school where she was among the best students in the class of 2013. Her performance at kamnara secondary school remains impressive. We are optimistic that given a chance to be in school, she will likely thrive academically to lift herself and the siblings out of extreme poverty.
