UPDATE: WOW - talk about a transformation! Everline has changed so much since coming to Seed's. She has been allowed to be a child again and it has been so fun to watch her love life. She's now in Form 1 in High School (9th grade) and doing well. She has lots of friends and the best giggle ever. We are now in need of a new sponsor for Everline - she's one that will write letters back and enjoy connecting with a family. Would you be able to sponsor her?
ORIGINAL STORY: Everline is a beautiful 13 year old in the seventh grade and sister of Metrine and Harriet. Everline has no living parents, so lives in the slums with her grandmother. She dreams of becoming a teacher one day and, when asked where she would like to travel, she states the capitol city, Nairobi. She comes across very serious and strong not wanting to talk about her and her sister's struggles. It is obvious she cares deeply about her little sisters and she gently holds their hands during the interview. She and her sisters usually have just one meal a day, sometimes only black tea. A tree in her grandma's yard bears fruit that the girls often pick and sell in order to provide food. Her biggest humiliation comes from other kids at the school she attends as they often tease her and tell her that she is "cursed" because both of her parents are dead. When asked if she would like to come to the orphanage, she says yes, but it is so apparent that she is deeply depressed inside.
