Teopista Naluyange
Sponsor Me For:
DOB: 03/16/2013
Good Health
Favorite Subject: Art
Favorite Pastime: Netball

Sadly, Teopista and her two brothers have been abandoned by both of their parents. Their father left first, leaving their mom to care for them alone. When life became too difficult for them, their mother left the children with their aunt and disappeared. Their aunt would have cared for them but unfortunately she passed away soon after, so their grandmother (who they met for the first time at their aunt’s burial) stepped in to provide for them.

Since their parents have never returned and they have no way of reaching them, Teopista’s grandma has to support them all by herself. She is a peasant farmer who grows food for them to eat, and sometimes she sells produce to pay for other things. She struggles to afford school fees for her grandchildren so they have had to miss classes sometimes, which affects their performance in school.

Sponsorship will enable Teopista to stay in school and finish her education, easing the burden on her grandmother! She wants to be a professional hairdresser when she grows up.

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:
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.
