Chisomo lives with her mom, dad, two younger brothers, and one older sister in Area 23. Her dad is a carpenter and provides income for the family when he can find work. There is no electricity or running water in their home. She is the first child in the family to go to school and is thankful for the scholarship from Good Soil Partners. She enjoys singing.
Chisomo has won an Top 10 Award in school and is the deputy head (student council) girl in her class. Math and physics are a challenge for her due to a lack of books. Getting to and from Area 23 requires transport, which is difficult for her to pay for. Chisomo will often walk one hour to get to school. She would like to go to college and become a surgical Dr. She would appreciate if Good Soil Partners could provide schools fees, books, and supplies.
