Naomi is six years old and lives with four of her seven siblings and her mother in the Soweto Slums in Kahawa, Nairobi.
After the first husband of Naomiäs mother passed away, she met the father of her four last children. He daily humiliated Naomi, her siblings and her mother and exposed her in public. After a few years of humiliation, he left the family, burned down their entire house and all the papers, such as birth certificates, and looked for a new family. Because all children have no papers, we looked for sponsors who are willing to pay a small surcharge in the first year to help the family with the new paper application.
Naomi’s dream is to become as great as her big sisters. She loves them immensely and likes to spend time with them. She likes to sing and has a lot of fun organising. Her favourite colour is blue.
She is a student in Kahawa Primary and is currently in pp2. Naomi is a happy, disciplined, and playful child.
