Hi there, I'm an 8-year-old girl who loves English class and hide-n-seek. I have two sisters and we live in Bunashimolo, a mountainous region in Uganda. It's a pretty big place with 1,094 families who speak Lumasaba. Some folks also speak Swahili, Luganda, or English. Our country is quite pretty, with lots of wild animals and tasty food like matoke and mangos. Things can be hard here though, because of a past war that left many of us poor.

But, thanks to your sponsorship, things are getting better! I get to go to school and have the chance to visit a health clinic if needed. I've even joined a kids' club! FH staff who assist us have been great. They've taught my family how to grow more vegetables and raise animals like cows and goats for better meals. We're working together for a brighter future, but it's not always easy. So, please keep my family and village in your prayers as we fight against poverty. Your support gives me so much hope, so thank you!
