Sheilla lives with her mother, two brothers and one sister, in a five-room brick house that has gravel floors and a metal roof, in Nandom, located in the Wa area of the Upper West Region of Ghana. Sheilla is in grade six at St. Joseph Primary School and her best subject is Math. Her favourite activities are reading and playing games with her friends. At home, she helps by collecting and carrying water, and preparing meals. Sheilla would like to become a Nun someday. At the Nandom Sponsor Site, sponsorship provides children with proper nutrition, educational support, and medical care. The site works to combat the poverty that occurs in the community due to poor soil and farming conditions.
