Age: 13 Years Old
Ambitions:


Child's situation: Kelvin is a well behaved and hard working girl who celebrated thirteen year in July last year she is a daughter to Nalwada Joan (mother) and Mulondo Stephen (the father) respectively who live in Bwami a village before kasaka primary school. Kelvin would very much want to study only that she finds a challenge in as far as raising the school fees is concerned because her parents struggles very hard to earn a living and the chances are very minimal that they may ably help her to continue with her studies and so she is always not sure whether at the beginning of every term will be able to go back to school. Despite all she is going through she has continued to perform very well in class and any helping hand rendered to her will be of great importance to her life so that after her studies she will be able to help and up lift the standards of her family.

Some of the most pressing problems in their homestead include; lack of sanitation, poor housing structure, they can’t afford primary education due to the costs attached to it. Other basics like food, clothes, medical bills and many others, are such a big challenge to the entire family. This-in- a way has demotivated not only Paul but also his siblings as well. Supporting Paul to fully be in school through sponsoring him will be such a great blessing to the entire household.

Ambitions:


Child's situation: Rose is a humble nice girl. This year she was promoted to primary six.She is 16 years. The kids nicknamed her “lady vegy-meaning vegetarian”. She is such a brilliant girl in class and generally outgoing. Unfortunately she comes from a dysfunctional family, of low-income and deplorable conditions. Children here have often had myriad of issues which range from; a chaotic rather than calm home. This has put additional strain on Rose and her siblings who often seem to be handling un ending adult problems and make it difficult to concentrate in class. In addition,Rose many times has little space to do homework and no help with it from an adult. We are looking for sponsorship for this young lady, as this will entirely improve on her general school attendance and overall concentration.

Gender: Female
Age: 13 Years Old
Ambitions:


Child's situation: Nakyanzi is 14 years old in primary five. The parents divorced a couple of years back,now stays with step mum. Florence's generally class performance is always good and promising,however,her regular class attendance isn't stable due to the fact that she is often sent back and forth for school fees which affects her concentration.Her parents are poor and their income is so small. They've only got a small piece of land on which they grow food crops mainly for home consumption. Once in a while she does casual work like digging for people to earn an extra income to cater for her children's school requirements,clothes and other small house hold basics. Many times when her mother is short of moneys-she skips school to look for money through doing all sorts of odd jobs just like the mother. Therefore,sponsoring Florence is one sure way of keeping her in school and ensuring a bright future not only for her but also her household.

Gender: Male
Age: 13 Years Old
Ambitions:


Child's situation: Benald is in Primary five at kasaka primary. However his school attendance isn't consistent since his family don't really prioritize education despite of that they've been advised otherwise-and on the other hand the family can't fully provide for his tuition fees since they've got no income coming in to support the whole lot of siblings there-in. But we are quite positive that a lot of this could change given sponsorship. Benald is a very friendly and outgoing lad,his best friend is called Ivan-they've got a lot in common. When he grows he loves to travel around the world-to visit new places,make as many friends as possible. So we are quite sure that most of his dreams will come to pass with proper education in place.Acquiring sponsorship will be one of the best things that could have happened to him and his family.

Child's situation: Richard's father sells fish and his mother is a housewife.The situation in this family isn't good, as the house they live in is very old. There is also insufficient food in the family. The area where they live is very dry, so it takes a long time to receive rain. Most times the crops they plant are hit by sunshine. There are no running businesses in this area, so it is difficult for people to get employed. Richard is doing well both in terms of health and his studies but he lacks school fees because his parents can not manage according to their job descriptions. Since he is in primary six now, he is reading to hard his books in order for him to pass. His parents were very happy when he was promoted to primary six and they him to always pray for them to get money. So he is praying for them to get money as he is also working hard. Kalungi's best friends are his grand father, his parents and his teachers because they do much for him which fills his heart with joy. Although they are his best friends, they are not his role models. His role models are these celebrated local artists in Uganda like ziza bafana and baby Doe. He has got some pets like cats and dogs. He likes them very much because they give them protection at home most especially cats eat rats and this helps them to avoid their clothes and crops from being eaten.

Child's situation: Enock is 11 years, living with his father and two siblings. The father is a farmer on a very small piece of land witnessed by me after the visit. They are 3 children in the family Enock is the 1st born. They live at Buzirango village which is a long distance from the school, this village is one of the deep remote areas with no good roads there are just small paths that people use, no hospitals so if someone falls sick it becomes a problem to reach him/her in the hospital. Parents separated quite a long time ago and the mother moved on with another man in a different village far from Buzirango. The father was left with his children of which he does all the chores in the mother’s absence. Off school, Enock is in charge of cooking food since there is no mother which is really hard for him and sometimes gets burnt and cut when peeling leading to not coming to school and this hinders his studies. During bad season, this family is treated to a single meal per day while other days they go with out any especially during dry seasons since the father is a farmer doing it alone and this delays their earning situation hence school fees. Any help granted to Enock will do him good.
