Sherinah is currently in the care of her step mother who works as a cleaner in Makerere University and her father is a man who doesn’t want to take up responsibility like paying school fees and even taking care of the home so the mother does everything. By the time we met Sherinah, she had not done any of the exams at school due school fees defaulting. She loves eating rice and meat. Her favourite hobby is dancing, her favourite colour is White and she dreams of becoming a Lawyer in future so that she can bring justice to people.

She was introduced to us by children who always come for centre days. She regularly attends centre days. Through our interactions we discovered that they had moved from their home district Bushenyi in the western part of Uganda because of the misunderstandings in their family. They moved to Kampala to start a living which was not easy for them. Her father is a Motorcycle (boda boda) rider while her mother washes clothes for people around. Her mother takes care of most of the family needs and being with 6 children it’s hard for them to raise school fees for them. Promise loves playing indoor games and favourite colour is white because she loves being peaceful. She dreams of becoming a Lawyer.
Aisha was born on 08/12/2005.
She is from a Muslim family. She is in S.4. she dreams of becoming a midwife because while visiting a hospital in the neighbourhood, she saw a woman loose her 3 kids that she had just gave birth to, due to the negligence of the midwife who never attended to them as it was supposed to be. She lost her father last year due to a boda boda accident which crushed him and died on spot. Her mother had separated with the father when Aisha was young and she got married to another family. She currently stays with a brother who is married and has a big family to take care of and thus cannot even manage to take care of Aisha’s domestic and school needs.
