Obwaagazi Child Sponsorship Program
Maria is a 6 year old girl who lives in Jinja, Uganda with her aunt and cousins. Maria’s mother is very ill and unable to take care of her. Maria was diagnosed with Down Syndrome as a young baby. She started walking at 3 years of age and talking at 4 years of age. Maria is very independent at home and loves to play with her friends and cousins. She is a happy girl that enjoys coming to Obwaagazi Academy every day. Maria participates in class and loves to sing, dance, and color pictures. We are thrilled to have Maria as a member of our Obwaagazi family!!!
