Sponsorship Update: 14 lucky children have found sponsors, leaving 11 left to go! Well, this isn't completely true.. another four kids have been added to the "waiting list." Awori Juliette is a single mother working in the stone quarry. Her husband recently left her to marry another woman and she is left to care for 4 of her children. The kids are all sick and it would be amazing if these kids could have the opportunity to go to school and get out of the stone quarry.

Aboo Lydia, 2, Likes playing with toys. (Baby)
A few posts ago, I highlighted three children in need of sponsors: Nancy, Emmanuel and Annet. I'm happy to say that Nancy and Emmanuel have found sponsors.
This week I will turn the spotlight onto three more children. Owari Joseph, Ajok Monica and Byaruhanga Ambrose.
Owari Joseph is 9 years old and only in nursery. He has never had a sponsor before, therefore no one was able to support his school fees. His mother has continually been sick making her work at the stone quarry extra difficult. Because of this, the family often resorts to begging.(4th from left top row)
Ajok Monica loves to skip and play hide and seek. She is 6 years old and in nursery class. She has 3 siblings who also attend CU school. Her family works in the stone quarry.(5th from left top row)
Byaruhanga Ambrose is a kind boy who loves sports. His favorites are soccer and volleyball and but he also loves dancing! He is 12 years old and in P.3. He needs a sponsor to encourage him to reach his full potential.(2nd from left, top row-light brown shirt)
It's $35/Year to sponsor a child. Please help spread the word! A little less than a month until the kids return to school(Feb2). I have been receiving their detailed biographies and pictures with their families, so those of you who are sponsor can expect that within the next few weeks.
All the best for 2009!
