RESCUE KAREN THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Hello, my name is Karen.
I am a 13 year old girl in grade 5.
My birthday is February 14th.
My favorite subject in school is English.
In my free time I enjoy Netball.
I would love to have you sponsor me.
I live in village of Mtendere East and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Kabulonga, Zambia.
Karen is an 13 year old girl from the village of Mtendere East which is in Lusaka Zambia. At home Karen’s duties include many household chores such as sweeeping, washing, and fetching water. She also has responsibilities in caring for her younger siblings and “extended” family. Karen really enjoys learning about English in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Netball.
Daily life for Karen and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Mtendere East, her home, are not able to afford to go to public school and survive on a single small meal per day. This meal is primarily made of nshima – a staple that is made of ground corn flour boiled in water.
