Nyirandirivamunda Christine is 42 years old and the mother to three children; Twirignirimana, 15; Tuyizere Valentin, 13; and Dusingizimana Suplier, 4. Christine's first husband left when Twirignirimana was just one year old. Christine then had her two youngest children with a man who never supported them.
Having nowhere to live, Christine’s brother gave her a piece of land, and the family came together to build a small structure to shelter them. Christine’s house is composed of one large room and has no windows. The metal roof has holes, leaving Christine and her family exposed to the elements. The family sleeps together on a bed constructed of dried bean stalks and an old grass mat.
Christine cultivates other people's land for $1 a day during certain growing seasons. However, many times of the year, Christine has no way to support her children and can not buy the necessary school uniforms needed for all of them to attend public school. As a result, her two youngest children have not been in school for more than a year. Twirignirimana raises guinea pigs and sells them for 50 cents, hoping he can raise enough money to buy school uniforms for his siblings.
You can help us build Christine's family a new Inshuti home and provide school uniforms for her children to have an opportunity for a brighter future.

There are so many holes in the roof that Christine's family is exposed to the rain.

Their one room house is too small for four people to live in and provides no privacy.
Christine has very few possessions and often saves broken items in case they can be utilized in the future.
