Faustina is from a large family and in her second year of high school. Faustina dreams of becoming a motivational speaker some day and to mentor other kids with similar fates as she. Though brilliant, the economic hardships the family is going through had made an otherwise cheerful and outgoing girl reserved and timid with a negative outlook about her future. With the father not working and the mother with an unstable trade as a “hawker” of second hand goods, the children of six will have to take turns to complete high school and may be tertiary as well. Should Faustina and her sister Christabel even succeed in completing high school, without any assistance, they will have to wait for their two senior sisters who completed some years back to complete tertiary education before they can also attend. This is too demoralizing for such a young mind and young shoulders.
Christabel is in her second year of high school and a science student with six sisters. She hopes to have a career in dentistry and philanthropy to support children from poor homes in her little village. Her father lost his job eight years ago and now periodically engages in ad hoc jobs while the mother sells second-hand clothing going door-to-door, a trade which barely earns her $30.00. Christabel misses home. If she visits, it’s another mouth to feed, and the family struggles enough to provide food for her immediate family. Already, she is scared she may not be able to complete her education to earn a living. But without education, Christabel has no chance of making it in today’s Ghana. All she hopes for is for a miracle to come her way. Could you be that miracle?
