Denise Nyamwiza, (20) is responsible for her younger siblings after their parents died of malaria two years ago. Denise searches for casual labour and sometimes makes money from selling avocados and ground sunflower seeds that she grows on small plot of land. She has been selected to take part in Concern's graduation programme meaning she will receive skills training and access to financial services that will help her build a sustainable livelihood.
'Life is terrible since our parents died. After their deaths, my brothers and sisters had to abandon school because we couldn't afford for them not to be available to work. I am always stressed because I know that I am responsible for my sisters and brothers.'
