Hi! I'm a strong, 11-year-old girl living with my large family in Bushiangi, a lovely hilly place in the Mbale region of Uganda. Here, we have about 383 families speaking mostly Lumasaba, though you can also catch a bit of Swahili, Luganda, or English.

Everyday, I go to a simple school where I enjoy learning to count the most. I also help my family by fetching water after school. Amidst all these, my favourite pastime is skipping rope. You know, it's tough here due to the long war that really affected us, but we remain hopeful.

Gladly, due to your sponsorship, there's been a change. Now, I'm able to learn, get medical care when I'm not feeling good, join kid's clubs, and mingle with my friends. Thank you for being a part of my life and giving me hope! Let's pray together for better days, not just for me, my family, and my village, but for all who are battling poverty.
