Hi there! I'm a 15 year-old boy, living in the hilly Bungwaanyi community in eastern Uganda. I have quite a big family - 5 sisters and 3 brothers, and I love them heaps! I'm in good health, and I'm super into mathematics at school. I also help out around home by taking care of our animals, and when I've time to chill, I play soccer.

Uganda is amazing, with lots of wildlife and yummy food like matoke and mangos. But because of our past civil war, many of us are poor. Things used to be tough without access to clean water or enough food all year, but everything changed with your help and the support of the FH team. Now I can go to school, see a doctor when I'm sick, join fun clubs and play with other children. FH even visits my family, teaching us better ways to grow food and keep animals. They're also helping our local leaders plan for a brighter future.

Life's not posh or fancy, and we don't have money or cars, but we are hopeful. So please, keep us in your prayers as we strive to overcome poverty. Thank you for being my ray of hope in these challenging times!
