Nakawunde Agnes

is a 5-year-old girl who wants to become a midwife

Agnes is a double orphan who lives with her grandmother at Jemba village. The grandmother has a small piece of land on which she grows food crops for home consumption, but she has no income-generating activity which makes it difficult for her to meet the basic needs of the family for things like clothes, medical care, bedding, etc. Education for Agnes is a big hurdle because before the opening of Kassanda Seed School, she had never been in school before because the grandmother couldn’t afford to pay all of the school requirements for her. Agnes wants to be midwife but this can only be achieved if someone can help her.
