Chausiku is an amiable and polite 14-year-old girl who lives with her grandmother in Tanzania. When she grows up, Chausiku wants to become a nurse. Her grandmother sells vegetables at a local market, but with a small income she is dependent on her son for additional support.

Chausiku has a bone infection in her right thigh bone and her grandmother can’t afford her medical care. If the injury is left untreated, she is at risk of developing a fracture in her bone. The infection makes it difficult for Chausiku to walk, and she no longer attends school as a result.
