Footprints Orphanage
  • Mwongeli joined us on 9th November 2013

  • From where Mwongeli started her life.........


    Mwongeli's mother lost both of her legs to tetanus and she was living in awful conditions with 6 year old Mwongeli and her older brother, growing maize to earn barely enough to live.

    Mwongeli wasn't going to school as she had to care for her mum, fetching water every day and protecting their crop from baboons.

    Mwongeli is now living at Footprints Orphanage and we are helping her mum too. She has a new metal roof and a water tank to collect rain water and the family have regular contact with each other.

  • This is what living at Footprints achieves!


    Mwongeli is fun loving, enjoying playing with her friends and working hard at school. She loves all creative activities and is a super reader, who enjoys listening to stories.

    As you can see from the photographs above she likes to dress up with her friends.

    Mwongeli also loves singing and is an excellent dancer.
