"Times are very hard for us...my little girl goes out to beg and because of that we eat sometimes."
- Houssainatou's Mother
Houssainatou Diallo (girl in white in above photo) lives with her mother in Conakry. Her father is deceased. Her mother lost her small business and is no longer able to support her needs. Houssainatou had to drop out of school due to illness and now needs to beg in order to eat. In addition to this challenging level of poverty, Houssainatou suffers from debilitating headaches that have stopped her from going to school. Her mother is glad that her daughter can attend MindLeaps and is hoping for support both for her daughter’s schooling as well as treating her headaches.
