We first met Nelly in 2010 in our child sponsorship program. Her mother is mentally ill and stabbed her father to death. The mother serves time in prison and sometimes is released when the government doesn't have enough funds to pay the guards, but she is picked up pretty quickly when she commits another crime. Nelly spent most of her time on the streets or being cared for by a neighbor before coming into full custody of Arise Africa in November 2012.

Nelly moved into the Arise Home on December 17, 2012. Nelly has a very fun personality and screams the loudest and most often out of all our girls! She loves to laugh and sing while taking a shower. She loves to play hopscotch and giggles all the time. She enjoys playing "house" and cares for her stuffed animlas very well.

Nelly is 8 years old and in the first grade. She attends a private school with our other kids in the home.
