Evelyn lives with her parents in a four-room mud house with gravel floors and a metal roof, in Nandom, located in the Upper West Region of Ghana. During the school year, Evelyn stays with her uncle so that she can attend school regularly. She is in the second level of Junior High School and her best subjects are English and Math. Her favourite activities are reading books, singing songs and playing games with her friends. At home, she helps with all the household chores. Evelyn would like to become a nurse if she is able to continue her education. At the Nandom Sponsor Site, sponsorship provides proper nutrition, education, and medical care. The site works to combat the poverty that occurs in the community due to poor soil and farming conditions.
