Cathrin has been sponsored by Pia Kristina Kabitzsch from Germany. Pia, thank you so much for enabling Cathrin to have an education!
Cathrin is six years old and lives with her two older sisters and her mother in the Soweto Slums in Kahawa, Nairobi.
Her father left the family and started a new life with a new family. Since then, Cathrin has unfortunately never seen him again. Her mother does everything to feed her family and is happy to earn a small income by cleaning a church near the slums.
When she grows up she would like to be an ophthalmologist and give people the opportunity to see everything around them. Cathrin loves to help her mother, either at home or in church and to play with her friends and siblings. Her favourite colour are red and purple.
