Christine lives with her two brothers and four sisters in Mathare, one of Kenya’s most deprived slums. Her father passed away a few years ago due to liver problems which the family didn’t have the money to treat. Her mother doesn’t work due to her age so one of her elder sisters has to provide for the family.
Christine is at State House Girls where she enjoys superb facilities and a better diet than she could ever hope for at home. She always scores as a top performer in her class and hopes to become a lawyer.
