The goal is to improve Susan’s chances on the job market by paying her secondary education and living costs for a few years as well as costs that may arise when first learning to be self-supportive.

Location: Thika, Kenya

Number of children: 1

Total amount per child: € 900

Susan is one of 56 children who lived at Macheo Children’s Centre permanently until 2015. The Cucu foundation sponsored her stay at Macheo and her education fees. In 2008 and 2015 various Cucu board members visited Susan at Macheo and cheered her on during a soccer game! In 2015 Susan finished her secondary school and she now lives with her older sister in Nairobi along with her other siblings. Susan helps out in the hairdressing and beauty salon with her sister. She is practicing her hairdressing and beauty skills here. The Macheo social workers are keeping a close eye on Susan and her family to make sure she learns how to become self-sufficient.
