Shakira was abandoned at 9 months by her mother and was taken to live with her grandmother. The father was not in position to care for her. Today, Shakira is still in the care of her grandmother. Shakira’s mother never returned and her whereabouts are unknown.
The father being a porter at construction sites doesn't earn enough money to care for his daughter. This has been affecting her attendance and performance at school. She is often sent home due to failure of paying school fees. The grandmother has been contributing to her school fees; however, she is also supporting 4 other children in her care and therefore struggling to make ends meet.
