Tabitha has been sponsored by Anne Rasche from Germany. Anne, thank you so much for enabling Tabitha to have an education!
Birthday: 21th of September 2010
Esther is thirteen years old and lives with four of her seven siblings and her mother in the Soweto Slums in Kahawa, Nairobi.
After the first husband of Esther's mother passed away, she met the father of her four last children. He daily humiliated Esther, her siblings and her mother and exposed her in public. After a few years of humiliation, he left the family, burned down their entire house and all the papers, such as birth certificates, and looked for a new family.
Because all children have no papers, we looked for sponsors who are willing to pay a small surcharge in the first year to help the family with the new paper application. Her dream is to become a secondary school teacher and to teach mathematics. Tabithia is very clever and would love to go to school herself. Unfortunately, her mother cannot afford the school fees for any of her children.
In her free time, Tabithia likes to play with her friends and sisters and helps her mother to keep the household clean. Her favourite colour is white, she thinks that everyone who wears white looks smart and educated.
