Support for child headed homes

Eliza Majoni 17,
hails from Kasambandopa village, with her 19 year old brother; they started living alone 4 years ago a situation which forced him to quit school and venture into casual labor for their survival. Since finding a piece work is not a joke, most of the times they go to bed on empty tummies.
