Hi there! I'm an 8-year-old boy living in the hilly village of Burukuru in eastern Uganda. Here, we mostly speak Lumasaba, but a bit of English, Swahili and Luganda too. We're about 562 families strong and even though we're not rich, there's a whole lot of love between us. My favourite place is at school, learning new words and stories in literacy class. I'm a huge soccer fan and also a bit of a helper around the house, often helping out with dishes!

Even though my homeland has seen tough times with a past civil war and a struggle with poverty, there's hope in my heart. All thanks to your sponsorship and efforts from FH. They help me continue my education, take me to the clinic when I’m sick, and even guide my parents on farming better veggies and taking care of animals like cows and goats. I love playing with my friends at the kids' club. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue striving for a better tomorrow. Thank you for filling my life with hope and encouragement!
