In February 2018, W.A.O. came to FIDA-Kenya seeking legal assistance. The father of her child had abdicated his parental duties, and responsibilities. Thus she was seeking child maintenance for the minor.

She went through the Self Representation training, was able to articulately represented herself in court, and a judgement was delivered in her favor. She was granted legal, and actual custody of the child. The father was ordered to provide education and medical cover for the minor. He was also ordered to pay Kshs. 26,000/- per month for food and shelter.
