Respa is an adorable little six year old whose favorite color is green. She has two brothers and is the only girl in the family. I would describe little Respa as almost being flirtatious. She is definitely very spirited. Respa tells us that her favorite food is "mandazi" which is similar to a sweet donut. We learned during the interview that both of Respa's parents have passed away and that she is living with her aunt. Her aunt does not have enough money for school, books, clothing, or food and it is a great struggle for Respa each and every day. She tells us that she doesn't know what an orphanage is, all she wants is to be safe and not hungry.

Built on love and hope.
