Diana's Profile

Diana  is born in Lessos village in Tinderet within Nandi  district in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. This is a region that is known to regard children with albinism as a taboo and a curse to the family.

Diana is the 4th born  child in the family of 6. She has 5 sibling and one of them ( Cynthia Chelagat )has albinism. They live in a grass thatched house with walls made of mud. The parents are very needy. The father is a small scale farmer planting mainly food crops for the family.  The mother is a house wife.

The two were not taken to school until they joined kacsu Programme last year (2011) for reasons that the family did not want to be the laughing stock of the community. So they decided to hide them at home. Infact Kacsu director was tipped by some neighbor that there were some ‘strange’ looking children who have been hidden and not allowed to venture out of the homestead.. That is how kacsu intervened and brought them to the programme.

She is currently in class 6 and trying to catch up despite being older than most of her classmates.. Her wish is to study hard and be a Nurse so that she can help her parents and other needy children. We are seeking sponsorship to take care of her fees, uniforms and her basic needs.This amounts to 400 euros per year.
