Nashiba is a seven year old girl who enjoys sponsorship to a school run by ABC Children's Aid in Uganda. She has five siblings and one of them also has a sponsor. Their mother is a widow and she cooks maize and goes door to door trying to sell them to earn some income. It's in no way enough though to meet the basics of the family's needs.

The family lives in a small room and luxuries such as electricity and running water is non existent. The children have to travel some way to fetch water and toilet facilities are shared with five other families living in the area.

Education is fundamental in order to achieve any degree of success and get out of poverty. Nashiba's mother had all but given up on the idea that her children would receive education and she's extremely grateful to her children's sponsors.

Financial support for education gives hope where hopelessness reigns.
