Nkwawir is one of six children and the only girl in her family. She lives with her parents and her brothers in a brick house in Sabongari, Cameroon. Nkwawir is in grade one and her best subjects are English and Art. Her favourite activities are running and playing with her friends. At home, she is responsible for collecting and carrying water for her family. Nkwawir would like to become a teacher when she grows up. At the Kumbo Sponsor Site, the Sisters of St. Therese of the Child Jesus use sponsorship funds to provide children with proper nutrition and medical care. Children also receive educational support to help them in their studies.
