Dorothy has been sponsored by Sabrina Michalek from Germany. Sabrina, thank you so much for enabling Dorothy to have an education!
Birthday: 25th of April 2011
Dorothy is nine years old and lives with her siblings and her mother in the Soweto slums in Kahawa, Nairobi. Her parents are married, but Dorothy‘s father is currently under arrest. The reason is a robbery at his workplace after which all security guards are questioned. The family has to struggle now even more for their survival because of the lack of money in the family budget. Dorothy's mother takes on every little job she can get, but the situation is without her father so bad at the moment that they mostly only eat one meal a day.
Dorothy's dream is not yet certain for her and she is open to any suggestion. She is a very bright child, with curious looks and questions. In her free time she likes to spend time with her family and misses her father very much.
