In the first term of academic year 2020/2021 we noticed that YOHANE was not attending classes frequently. On further investigation and a home visit, we realised this was due to lack of basic needs at his home such as a pair of shoes and clothes. He would only attend on the days his clothes were clean as he had just one outfit. While his mother washed his other clothes and they were wet, he would be forced to wait at home. He had outgrown his shoes and was walking 9 minutes to Sparkle barefoot. We have now provided him with clothes and shoes and he is back attending Sparkle every day. He is such a delightful boy aged 5 and is about to graduate to Primary School.
