Richard has energy to spare and loves sports of all types, but his best game is football / soccer. Wearing number 7, he’s one of the best players at his school. Originally from a village called Kamuli, Richard was born in 2000. His father passed away several years later and Richard and his sister, Viola, went to live with his aunt and uncle who had 8 children of their own.
“I love my school so much. My best subject is maths.”
In 2011, Richard’s uncle was injured and became unable to provide for their education. Richard and Viola became part of Children of Uganda’s sponsorship program. Currently in Primary 6, Richard loves his school, loves the lakes and hills of Uganda and enjoys hanging out with his best friend, David, in his free time.
We help you give a hand UP to Ugandan children and women in need + share the joy.
Each child who is educated, fed and safe is a strong foundation for peace.
Each self-supporting woman makes a community thrive. Each beat of music carries the joy of a nation.
