Blessing is 8 years old, but she is already in class 3. She had chicken pox at the time of our visit, that is the readon for the face "mask". She is the youngest in the family with 2 brothers and a sister. They have a room in a building where 12 other families live. Her father died three years ago, now the mother is raising the children alone. She makes 'kelevele' (plantain) and sells it by the road to provide for her children. They have access to water and electricity. She is very good at Maths and English and wants to be a doctor. She would like to have a new school bag.
