Jalia lives with her grandmother and her 2 younger brothers. Her father is deceased and her mother, who’s health was fair in 2010, is not living in the home. The grandmother used to sell drinks for a living but she could not meet the children's basic needs, let alone educational needs. Jalia had to stop going to school. Jalia wants to be a teacher or a nurse. Last year, she developed a problem with her vision that local social workers are trying to help her with. Sponsorship for Jalia would mean the ability to return to school, continue her education, and receive healthcare from a local clinic.
