Namiiro Evelyn

is a 7-year-old girl who hopes to become a nurse

Evelyn is a double orphan – both her mother and father died of HIV AIDS. She lives with her grandmother and 5 other children, all of them orphans. The grandmother has a small piece of land on which she grows food crop and coffee for cash. Because the grandmother is a peasant farmer, she gets money only during harvest time yet the needs of the family do not wait and the money she earns is not enough to meet the needs of the number of children in her care. Evelyn needs someone who can help her with education so that she can fulfill her desire of becoming a nurse.
