About this Sponsorship

ADELITE GLAD was born August 30th, 2006. She joined CGA in the 2nd grade, in January, 2014 from another school. She is the second born child of three, and she lives with both of her parents in Mbita. They all live in a one bedroom, permanent rental house. Her father is a public transport driver and her mother works at CGA as an office assistant. Her older sister is in third grade at CGA. They have running water in the neighborhood and electricity. They use charcoal for cooking. Adelite sleeps on a bed and under a mosquito net. Both Adelite and her parents are very grateful for allowing her to join her sister at CGA. 2017 Update: Adelite's mother no longer works at CGA. 2019 Update: This is Adelite's 6th year at CGA and in her 7th grade. Adelite has grown and looks beautiful. She is polite and friendly to her teachers and classmates. Unlike two years ago when she was very playful and could work only under close supervision both at home and at school, Adelite has become responsible. CGA found out that both her parents are working away from home and her older sister joined a boarding high school. Her younger brother is with her mother. So Adelite was living by herself. Her father would call to check on her and send her money for food. And her mother occasionally comes to check on her during weekends. Adelite was taking care of herself, dog and the chickens. This was a major concern to both her teachers and CGA management as a whole. CGA immediately called her father and insisted he (or someone) needed to come and stay with Adelite. The father was able to get a work transfer and he now stays with her at their house in Mbita. Adelite’s father is a public transport driver. He drives the minibus route from Mbita - Kisumu. He drives to Kisumu every morning and back to Mbita in the afternoon. so that he can be home each night to care for Adelite. Despite all these challenges, Adelite has remained calm and continued to come to school without fail. She enjoys learning at CGA and likes the food served. She does well in English class and her best game is Netball.
