Obwaagazi Family Sponsorship Program
Denis lives in a full house with his mom, dad, grandpa, uncle, 7 older siblings, and 3 younger siblings in Masese, Uganda. They rent a permanent house with cement floor and electricity. They have to share a latrine, and have to travel 25 meters for water. The family doesn’t have access to safe drinking water.
The main source of income comes from Denis’ mom and dad. His mom makes necklaces and his dad is a controller at the Nile Breweries. Even though the family has some income they struggle with financial problems. They cannot afford to provide daily meals, they struggle with school fees and they don’t have enough mattresses for all the family to sleep on.
The family have noticed huge improvements in Denis since he started at Obwaagazi and are very pleased with his progress with speaking and writing.
