Education for Flora

Flora is 15 years old.  Life began well for her, her 3 sisters and 4 brothers.  Unfortunately, sadness came in her life as her father died when she was only 12 years old.  Then the hard work began, as she was now responsible for the family as her mother was also sick and could not work.  Flora, grade 8, has missed much school due to the problems often missing school to sell vegetables and charcoal by the roadside.  The family received help from Gondola Home Based Care (HBC) in 2007.  They have helped with food, clothes and are now helping with her education.  She knows her mother will die soon, but Flora wants to complete her education and believes this will help her take care of her brothers and sister and get them through their education as well.
