Christine, her brother and sister, live with their grandmother and their two aunts in a two-room brick house that has earthen floors and a metal roof, in Serenje, Zambia. Christine is in grade seven at Chikwanda Primary School and her best subject is English. She enjoys reading books and playing netball with her friends. At home, she helps with all the household chores. Christine would like to become a nurse someday. At the Serenje Sponsor Site, the Sisters of Mary Immaculate provide children with school fees and materials, as well as proper nutrition. Parents and guardians attend business training workshops to learn how to supplement their incomes.
