D.O.B November 17, 2006
Sylvia Wanyama arrived to RJO on January 16, 2018. Her father died in 2017 leaving behind her mother who was very vulnerable. Sylvia was performing poorly in school due to lack of attendance. Her older sister heard of RJO and encouraged her to live at the orphanage to be able to receive the proper care and education that her family could not provide. She is very social able and loves to read. She dreams of becoming a teacher.
