Fridah is the lady who took Martin in. She is a teacher by profession but at the moment she is unemployed, it’s been quite difficult for her to get a job.
She decided to employ herself by starting a day care programme in her small house. Parents who have small children in her neighborhood and are working and have no one to leave their children with, take them to Fridah’s house in the morning and pick them in the evening. It’s more of babysitting for Fridah. She has a passion for kids and so it’s usually easy for her to take care of people’s kids while they are at work at a fee. That way she is able to cater for her own children’s needs. At the moment her day care programme has just a few kids because her house is too small to accommodate more kids. I had a chat with her and she told me that she would love to move to a bigger house where she can be able to absorb more kids in her day care programme and also Martin together with her own kids can get to have their own bedroom. She requested if we could be helping her pay part of the rent when she moves in to a bigger house.
