Nakayiza Maureen

is a 9-year-old girl who hopes to be a journalist.

Maureen is under the care of a frustrated old grandma. Her father has a mental illness which resulted in complete madness. Her mother left her to look for a job and she has not contacted her for years. The situation at home shows a terrible picture – sometimes they miss daily meals. The land on which they grow food crops is very small and is no longer fertile. Her grandmother has no job and is too old to work any longer. Maureen wants to become a journalist, but this can only be achieved through someone’s help.
