Robert’s father was a shamba-boy (gardener) whose origin was unknown. His parents got together when they were teenagers, and his mother dropped out of school because they couldn’t afford the fees. They had two children together, but when they were expecting a third, Robert’s father ran away from the family. His mother doesn’t clearly know where he came from so she wasn’t able to follow him, and she was left raising her children alone. She was forced to turn to the gardening work that the father had been doing to earn some money.

Tragically, Robert’s mother died in 2018 and the children went to stay with their aunt who is also a peasant farmer. She has other children to care for as well and she can’t afford to keep them all in school.

Robert badly needs sponsorship if he is going to be able to continue his education, and he hopes to become a civil engineer when he grows up if he is able to finish school. Robert enjoys studying English in school and playing soccer, and his siblings Maria Nakaweesi and Lawrence Sserugo are also available for sponsorship.

About my community:
St. Francis of Assisi (Lugazi)
In the Lugazi Diocese, CARITAS finds some of the poorest families in all of Uganda. Because of St. Francis of Assisi's great love for the poor, he is the patron of this community. We pray for his intercession so that more children in this diocese have a chance to overcome the poverty that they have always known.
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.
