Family History: Agnes’ mother, Eunice, left the child with her mother, Robina, when Agnes was only four months old. Agnes survived on cow milk when Eunice abandoned her to her grandma Robina’s care. Eunice had run off to get married to another man with whom she now has 5 children but her husband will not let Agnes come join the family. The grandmother Robina is cared for by her other children but it’s not enough to pay Agnes’ school fees. Robina cannot do farming as she used to because she is old.
