Lovena is five years old and she is so excited that she might be able to go to school this year that she can hardly stand it. She lives with her mother, sister, and two brothers in the village of Cargo. She used to be in our sponsorship program before her father died and her mother had to move her children to an area called Boucandrice to live with family there. The house they had been living in belonged to her husband, so after he died, his family took the house from them and sent them away. Lovena and her siblings were very sad to have to move, but their mother had no choice. She had to find a way to get back on her feet and figure out where she would go. Now Lovena’s mother has moved back to the area of Galette Chambon called Cargo but they live in a little tiny, mud house with a dirt floor and only one room. They built the house themselves when they found a family that was willing to let them live on their property. Lovena would now like to return to school, but her mother cannot afford to pay for it. Lovena needs a sponsor again if she is going to go to school. This is a family in serious, serious need.
