Bridget is between 12 and 13 years old (her grandmother didn’t have any information
about her except her baptism card which dates back to 2002).
Both her parents died of AIDS but her grandmother doesn't remember exactly when.
Bridget is in Primary 4 and should be in Primary 7. She is three years behind at school because of her need to work. She works every day in the field growing vegetables to provide for her grandmother. She gets her clothes from neighbours as she cannot afford to buy her own.
We found her neglected, carrying a large water can from the well and finding firewood to cook. She has had to cook and maintain the household. She didn’t have a bed to sleep in - she has been sleeping on a foam mat on the floor.
