John’s mother became pregnant with him at a young age, when she was still in school. John’s father, who was a boy in her class, ran away upon learning of the pregnancy because he feared punishment. John’s mother was forced to drop out of school and move in with her own mother for support.

Ever since then, John and his mother have lived with his grandmother, who is herself a widow and a peasant – so they have all had to struggle for survival. Tragically, John’s mother died in an accident last year and he is now completely reliant on his grandmother, who will not be able to support him through school.

The only way for John to have a better life as a poor, orphaned child, is if he is able to attend day school and get a good education in a healthy, structured school environment. He loves planning football and wants to become a builder when he grows up.

About my country:
Uganda
Known as the “Pearl of Africa”, Uganda is located on the shores of Lake Victoria in the Great Lakes region of East Africa. Since emerging from decades of civil war and the devastation of AIDs, estimates indicate that 48% of Uganda’s population is below the age of 15. Young children suffer disproportionately in the struggle to access healthcare, education, and clean water.
