My Story

**Mackline is the 2nd born in her family staying with her Grandmother and her three siblings in a house of one living room and one bedroom. Both Mackline’s parents separated and abandoned them, leaving all the responsibility of four children to Mackline’s Grandmother. The Grandmother is a peasant farmer growing crops like bananas, millet, beans, and ground nuts. They can for example harvest two bags (100kgs each) of maize and sell one for UGX 50.000/= leaving one for home consumption. Mackline’s Grandmother is also a causal laborer; she digs in other people’s gardens to earn money. She can for example dig from 7am to 1pm and earn UGX 4.000/=. The money she gets out of casual laboring and selling some of their yields is to be used to pay for the children’s school fees, buy them scholastic materials and also cater for their basic needs at home like buying paraffin for their table lamp, soap for laundry and washing utensils and also cater for their medical bills in case someone in the family falls sick. But the money they get is not enough to cater for all the above hence needing help with Mackline’s education.**
