Jeniphe was referred to the program by Augustine, a home based care worker, in 2008 and at that time she was a shy young girl from a village at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro, parent less and living with poor and ill relations. In 2011 we visited the simple pole and mud hut of her elderly but healthy grandfather who is now her supporting relative, a herbalist and subsistence farmer. Other family members, aunt uncle and nephew live huts within a few meters and the construction of a now crumbling block house has been stalled for years given the mud staining at the base. Faces of children peek out, their caregiver, Jeniphe’s aunt, clearly suffering from illness.
