Hey there! I'm a 12-year-old boy who thinks literacy is the coolest subject in school, and I help my family take care of our animals when I get home. I'm a pretty good soccer player too! I live in Bushiangi, a mountainous place in the Mbale region of Eastern Uganda. We've got about 383 families here and we all speak different languages, but mostly Lumasaba. It's awesome being surrounded by Uganda's fantastic wildlife and amazing food like matoke and mangoes.

However, we've faced some bumpy roads, like the civil war that has made things tough for us. But, with you supporting me, things are starting to look up! The wonderful folks at FH encourage me and my family. Now, I can go to school, play with friends, and get medical help when I need it. They always pop in and teach my parents cool things about farming, helping to make our crops healthier.

I can't thank you enough for your support and giving me hope. Please remember me, my family, and my village in your prayers as we work hard to overcome poverty.
