Cynthia started the program in 2007, but her sponsor wasn’t able to continue supporting her education once COVID hit. Cynthia did well in her education, graduated high school, and is now studying a hair and beauty course at the National Industrial Training Authority. Cynthia is described as a bright, humble, and hardworking young lady. She is currently practicing her trade in a hair salon near her home to gain more skills. She hopes to get a good job after graduation so that she can improve her life and that of her family. Cynthia and her family live in a single room made of iron sheets in the slums of Ngando Village. They have to buy water and they share bathrooms with the neighbors but the facilities are not very clean. They have access to electricity and use a kerosene stove to cook. Cynthia’s mother earns her income by washing laundry but often doesn’t make enough money to feed the family more than one meal a day. Cynthia and her siblings have more meals depending on the availability of food.
