Metrine Akinyi was born on May 12th, 2012. She joined Grade Two class in 2023. She previously attended a public primary school in her neighborhood before joining CGA. She lost her father in 2012, three months after she was born. Her mother, who is on daily medication, was unable to care for her and her elder sister due to frequent health related challenges so she sent them to live with an aunt in Mbita who is also a widow and on daily medication. They live in a semi-permanent house about an hourâs walk from Christâs Gift Academy. They fetch water from the lake for washing and bathing and get treated drinking water from a neighboring health facility where the guardian works. Metrine sleeps on a bed under mosquito net. The guardian is very grateful for the opportunity to partner with CGA.
