Hey there! I'm a 15-year-old guy from the mountainous Bunashimolo community in the Mbale region of Uganda. It’s quite lively in my house, with 3 sisters and 5 brothers around! I absolutely love science at school. Once I’m back home, I spend my time caring for our family animals and playing my favourite game - soccer.

In our little community of about 1,094 families, most of us speak Lumasaba, but some also speak Swahili, Luganda, or English. Uganda is really beautiful with lots of wild animals and delicious foods like matoke and mangos. But we’ve been through a painful civil war that left us struggling.

But, know what? Your support is changing my life and that of my family! The caring folks at FH encourage me to study hard and live up to my potential. Now, I can go to school, get medical help when needed, and enjoy my time with mates at kids' clubs. They even help my family learn new ways to grow vegetables and raise animals, and that’s helping improve our food intake!

I request you to keep me, my family, and my village in your prayers as we strive to overcome our poverty. Thank you for giving me hope!
