Aminata has been waiting 395 days for a sponsor.
Aminata and her family live in a single-room zinc house in the Jumbo Stone Bathurst Village community, where access to clean water is a daily challenge. In addition, there is no access to electricity for the residents of the Jumbo Stone community, thereby making it very difficult for school-going kids like Aminata to study at night.
The primary occupation for residents of the Jumbo Stone community is vegetable gardening and stone mining. However, because Aminata's father is a retired military officer and Aminata's mother is an ailing housewife, her family depends only on her father's monthly pension to survive.
Aminata would like to be a lawyer when she grows up to make a difference in her community.
Your sponsorship commitment will help keep Aminata in school and help achieve her dreams.
