It is seven in the night. As a custom in her home, everyone has fallen asleep except Najjemba. The moon´s light freely finds its way into the little hut through the cracks on the mud-walled house. Najjemba looks around scared-the house is too quiet. So silent that she thought she was inside a deep cave. She adjusts the blanket on her sister, Joan, who is fast asleep and quickly falls back on her mat. Time elapses yet she hasn´t yet had sleep. Her back pains-she worked in the farm half of the day, took care of her little sister and tended to the little garden of vegetables. This is not what Najjemba desires though. She wants to go to school. Well, she is a mere village girl but her dream to change her community amazes everyone she talks to about it. Once in a while, she sneaks to the school nearby and asks to study part time for free. Most teachers of Kabaale School know her. They allow her to take the science class and English literature class. Najjemba is an outgoing little girl. She has great rapport with the teachers and the students in school.
