Cleyton is eight years old, and she has been with ALG since 2019, when she joined the UPG Portugal Sponsoring Programme, in Xai. Cleyton’s father has died, and she lives with her mother and a younger sister who is HIV positive. Cleyton’s mother is the only provider of the family and sometimes she works in the farming plot.
In 2019, Cleyton’s house, made of reed, was already degraded, with the strong winds it was even more damaged and exposed to the rain. With the infra-structure programme ALG wants to build stronger houses with sturdier materials, such as bricks and also wants to install doors and windows.
