When Twina was five years old and her siblings were seven and three, her mother was forced to leave her husband. He had joined in a group of drug users and became increasingly more abusive and violent. Twina’s mother, could not turn to her own family as her father was a mean drunkard and the family is polygamous. The three children and their mother were on their own.

One of the GLK Trustees met Twina and recognized her intelligence and active spirit. She was brought to Kibeta English Medium Primary School, interviewed by the teachers and accepted as a boarding student. Twina adapted very quickly to her new school and fellow school mates. Her spirit of fun and love of life is impressive. We are all happy to have found caring sponsors who are committed to her education and her future.
