WAITING FOR SPONSOR

Nantale Shamilah is a pretty and social 12-year-old who is the second child amongst her four siblings. She loves reading and dancing. Her favorite dish to cook is Irish potatoes with chicken and her favorite color is blue.


Her mother is a prostitute and the where about of the father are not known. They stay in a one-room house in one of the ghetto areas in Kampala. At night they are always by themselves and in most cases, they go without food for long periods of time because they are left alone very often.



The children sometimes do favors and wash clothes for people in the community in order to buy a meal, the sad thing is that mom sometimes brings her boyfriend’s home which frustrates the children, she is always drunk and a disgust in the community. 



She wants to become a Social Worker when she finishes school.
