Birthday: February 5, 2003 Sponsorship #: 2022-00-048HC

MANAIKA is a beautiful 19 year old who has not been able to go to school for the last six years when her parents died and she moved in with some friends. She now lives on her own and sells household goods to make money to feed herself. She knows that she has no future ahead of her if she doesn’t go to school, so she has decided to try to find a sponsor and go to BGM School, even if that means starting out in the fifth grade. She has three sisters and three brothers who also live with her and her friend. They all struggle to survive. She knows that if she goes to school, she may eventually get to go to a trade school to learn how to sew, and she can support her family by sewing. It will all start with finding a sponsor. This young woman has such courage. We are praying with her that someone sponsors her and then that she has the courage and stamina to continue to reach for her goals.
